If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed that this weekend I have been posting some photos with the amazing chef’s knives I got sent to review from Edge Of Belgravia.

As an experienced cook -over 12 years and counting I have to admit, I love a good knife. It makes all the difference when you can cut nicely and effortlessly, but above all use a stylish product as well. This is the first time I use designer knife and I am very impressed. The set I was sent is called “Precision”. It contains 4 knives, that you are very like to use daily. It includes;

Precision Paring Knife (6″/15cm)-this precision small knife can turn a strawberry or a lemon slice into a masterpiece.

 

Each knife has a very easy to hold handle with a stainless steel blade, which is designed by the London designer Christian Bird. Personally I find each knife very easy to handle and incredibly comfortable to cut with. I have been using them for just about a week now and I can recommend them as a Christmas gift idea for a any enthusiastic cook. It would make a wonderful gift for anyone who consider themselves to be a “foodie”.

The best part about the knives is that they are displayed in this unique Black Diamond stand. This shiny knife block would love lovely on any worktop by adding edge and modern twist to any kitchen. I am looking forward to filling up the other spaces on my knife block as for now it sits proudly beside my Vitamix where I make our morning smoothie. The small paring knife is perfect for peeling my ginger, which I add every morning to the blueberry smoothie I make. But now I want to share with you a recipe, that I made this weekend with the help of the Edge of Belgravia knives. 

 

 

Mediterranean Butter Bean Stew

 

 mediterranean butter bean stew

Here is what you need 

  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 leek
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 10 mushrooms of your choice (nicely chopped)
  • 1 pecorino red pepper (or 4-5 small pecorino pepper) 
  • 1 cup of cooked butter beans (about 200 gr)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper 
  • Bay leaf
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • Fresh basil for serving 

I enjoy cooking in a clay dish. Even if takes a bit longer, the taste is well worth the effort. Simply chop everything and place it into your dish. Add all the seasoning and mix well. Place into a medium heat fan oven (around 150 C) and let it cook for about 2 hours. You can use the same ingredients and adapting it to be make onto the cooker as it will be very fast. The dish is versatile, as it can be served with rice, potatoes, pitta bread or you can make nice wraps with it for your lunch box. 

Serve with fresh basil and some of your favourite salad on the side.

Overall I am impressed and I love my modern Edge of Belgravia knife set, which sits beautifully on my quite traditional kitchen worktop. It was a pleasure to review this knife set and I am looking forward to making more nice things using the knives. 

I would recommend this set to anyone, who loves cooking and likes contemporary style. Edge of Belgravia offers some other sets, which offer an exquisite choice. Please click here to visit their website
