Wulff Den Deli makes slicing and dicing easy

During lockdown and with many restaurants closed I have been cooking more often at home, but who knew knives make a big difference to when it comes to slicing and dicing in the kitchen as I discovered.

I have many knives at home and to be fair they are your usual cheap run of the mill knives and most are over a decade old so they are quite blunt but I never thought that having decent sharp knives would really make a difference and how wrong was I.

I was gifted on a courtesy basis thanks to Wulff Den Deli a set of their Bleddyn knife range to show me that professional knives are very important to have and use. Each made slicing and dicing that much easier from cutting meat, fish, vegetables, fruit and cheese.
