No I'm not feeling felonious, it's just that how can I be expected to cook like Nigella, Giata and Ina if I don't have a knife like theirs. All I have is a puny little paring knife. I long to dice and slice with panache. If you've seen the movie Julie and Julia and saw the scene where Julia Childs goes to cooking school and realizes she doesn't know how to slice and chop you know what I mean.
Each time I watch one of their cooking shows and watch the veggies flying I sigh, turn to my husband and ask, "Can I have a knife like that?'. He shudders slightly and always says NO! It's not that I'm dangerous in the kitchen, it's merely that I not the most dextrous person in the world and his visions of me with a large sharp knife give him nightmares.
