<h3>Epicurean Kitchen Tools</h3><p>Choosing the right style of <u><a href="http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/cooks-tools/tool-sets">kitchen tools</a></u> can definitely require some thought. Chances are you’re looking for something professional with an air of culinary excellence. At the same time, cooking at home means you want kitchen with a touch of family too. But don’t worry. At Williams-Sonoma, we design pieces that are practical and artistic at the same time. They get the job done but also look rustic and inviting. That’s exactly what our Epicurean kitchen tools are all about: high-quality pizza tools and cutting boards that encourage family-style dining, all with a hint of Tuscan inspiration. Here are some great ideas to make the Epicurean Collection work for you.</p><br><p>Have a pizza party. There’s almost nothing that kids – and let’s face it, adults too – love more than authentic Italian pizza. If you have a large patio, a big <u><a href="http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/outdoor/outdoor-pizza-ovens">pizza oven</a></u> is a good idea that pays off with tons of happy moments spent together with family and friends. In the big city, many apartments have space for a smaller pizza oven on the balcony. Our Epicurean pizza tools let you work with homemade pies like a pro. Various sizes accommodate pizzas from 10" to 14" in diameter. One suggestion: when it’s time to serve, just carry the peel to the dining room table – or backyard dining area – and let everyone grab their own slice.</p><br><p>Go green with an <u><a href="http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/agrarian-garden">eco-friendly</a></u> cutting board. If you’re concerned about the Earth and want to cut down as much as possible on wood products in your home, this is a great solution. Epicurean green cutting boards are made from 100 percent FSC-certified recycled paper. That way, you can cook and feel great too. At the same time, these boards are very strong and durable, so they stand up to food prep just as well as normal wood cutting surfaces.</p><br><p>Make working with tomatoes easier. Are you a big fan of Italian cuisine? That means cutting up tons of tomatoes, onions, green peppers and fresh herbs. Keep your countertop – and kitchen floor – clean by choosing a cutting board with grooves or a well. As you slice, any unwanted liquids run straight into the well instead of dripping onto the counter and making a mess. That keeps the cutting surface clean, making it easier to chop without accidents. After you’re finished, just tip the board over the sink until the liquids run out. This design also works wonders with thawed chicken, meat and <u><a href="http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/cooks-tools/tools-meat-poultry-seafood">fish</a></u>. You spend less time cleaning up and more time getting great flavors.</p><br><p>Enjoy a cutting board that doesn’t move around. If your countertop is made of smooth marble, or if it’s an older surface that’s not exactly even, normal cutting boards tend to rock back and forth or slide while you chop. This can be difficult to navigate, especially if you’re trying to get precise and even cuts. The solution? A nonslip cutting board. Silicone grippers hold it firmly in place even on wet surfaces. No rocking, no movement, no accidents. Just smooth slicing, <u><a href="http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/cooks-tools/choppers">dicing</a></u> and mincing. Finish faster, and with professional results.</p><br><p>Pick the right size. The amount of space you need in a cutting board depends on your personal style and the complexity of the recipes you choose. Are you an organized chop-everything-up-before-starting-to-cook chef? Go as large as you can. The extra room lets you wash all your <u><a href="http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/cooks-tools/strainers-colanders">vegetables</a></u> and keep them off to the side while prepping them. On the other hand, if you don’t have a lot of counter space, a smaller cutting board fits almost anywhere and is easy to carry from sink to island. When making soup one ingredient at a time, the smallest boards let you chop and then take everything straight to the pot for clean and quick adding of veggies and herbs.</p><br><p>Be chic; serve with your Epicurean kitchen tools and boards. Instead of traditional plates, give things an elegant twist by serving each guest on their own cutting board. Your visitors are impressed, and the food’s presentation looks amazing. This idea is perfect for everything from salads to <u><a href="http://www.williams-sonoma.com/shop/outdoor/outdoor-grill-tools-accessories">grilled</a></u> steaks.</p>
