How to Cook Salmon

King, Coho, Pink, and Sockeye, among others, are very popular for their health benefits and flavor. Some salmon can be eaten rare, some has to be hot smoked over a long period of time, some is only good for deep frying, but the vast majority is only good for scanning.

Totally Bamboo Cutting Board: Your knives will thank you for this!

(Updated June 2016) – There is nothing worse than a slim and flimsy small chopping board. They slide all over the place, warp and bend and a terrible for your knives. Enter – the Big Kahuna – this beast of a chopping board will sort you out whether you are cracking crabs or taking a whole leg of lamb off the bone.

They are bound to be taking photos on their phone, coffee or organic chai latte in hand, probably sporting a hangover from visiting a ‘too cool for school’ sake or wine bar the night before. They are out there. Like an edible mold, the food movement is creeping around the world and gaining followers wherever it goes.
