Chefs Open New All-Day Restaurant in Santa Monica

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Putting the finishing touches on Socalo’s signature chips may not seem like a two-woman job, but chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger are always there for each other to lend a helping hand.

“Good thing we have the both of us. I know this is a very hard job. Very important,” laughed Milliken and Feniger.

That humor and banter is a signature of their 38-year relationship. Milliken and Feniger crossed paths many times in their early careers, but it all culminated in Paris when they decided to officially pair up.

6 Best Chef’s Knives Reviewed 2020 | Shopping : Food Network

This Miyabi Birchwood was the most expensive knife we tested, but we felt that the sharpness of the blade and precision of its cuts were unmatched. Its wafer-thin asymmetric blades create an exceptionally sharp blade and smooth cutting edge, making it live up to the product’s tagline: Beauty of sharpness.

Best chef’s knives for 2021: Global, Zwilling, Wusthof and more

Some of the best kitchen tools only cost a few bucks. But if you want a great chef’s knife, you’ll have to be willing to spend a little more. I’ve invested hundreds of dollars in chef’s knives, but I use them every day to slice, dice, cube, mince or, if I’m feeling fancy, chiffonade. A good knife can feel like a dream — and it can make holiday cooking even more fun than usual — but a poorly balanced or dull one can be a pain to use, and can even lead to more cut fingers and other accidents.

Whether you cook only on occasion or consider yourself an amateur home chef, owning the right pots and pans for the job — from braising a pork shoulder to frying up eggs for breakfast — is essential. No one is more familiar with the intricacies and day-to-day use of cookware than professional chefs. And while they may depend on fancy brands like Mauviel in their work kitchen, at home, they’re cooking with decidedly more hardy (and affordable) hardware. (Hint: Everyone loves Lodge skillets.)
