The Albion Rooms in Ottawa is known for two things; delicious craft cocktails and charming charcuterie platters. It's the perfect pairing for a great evening out with family and friends. This unique kitchen, lead by Chef Stephen LaSalle, focuses on "Contemporary Country Canadian" food, pulling in different elements of Canadian cuisine with a rustic country style to produce plates that are modern but familiar.
Jesse Bell has been Lead Charcuterie at this trendy hangout for 1.5 years. He's responsible for pickling and pasteurizing each season's harvest, stocking the charcuterie station and cutting the thinly sliced crostini that are the canvas for each bite.
... and he cuts A LOT of crostini. Sometimes a dozen or more Première Moisson baguettes a day.
Previously, Jesse was using a standard foot long serrated knife to perform this tedious task. WÜSTHOF Canada thought he was the perfect candidate to really put our Double Serrated Bread Knife to the test. After a couple months of working with it on a daily basis, here's what Jesse had to say.
Sharp blade. Straight cuts. This knife does all the work for you as it bites and glides through food with virtually no crumbs left in its wake. It cuts through baguettes like butter. Brownies like silk. Smooth and seamless.
Whether you’re left or right handed, the WÜSTHOF Double Serrated Bread Knife will feel like a perfect fit. Plus, with its 20% improvement on edge retention over the standard serration, you’ll have a long, sharp, happy life together.
