How to use a kitchen knife 8th December 2009
Kitchen knives
Techniques from chef Marianne Lumb

You can always tell if you're in the house of someone who doesn't cook - their knives are totally blunt. Chef Marianne Lumb has written a book, Kitchen Knife Skills, that explains everything there is to know about knives - how to choose and care for them, how to keep them sharp, and how to use them most effectively. Chefs always work with their own knives, and Marianne brings hers to the Womans Hour studio to show Jane some essential knife techniques. She also discusses being in the finals of this year's Masterchef:The Professionals.

'Kitchen Knife Skills', by Marianne Lumb, is published by Apple, ISDN: 978-1-84543-334-5
