If you've been keeping up with our blog, last week we discussed the top cuts of lamb for Easter. As we just closed out Passover, we decided to share a fun kosher recipe that everyone can enjoy, whether you participated or not. For those that aren't familiar or don't observe, Passover is a Jewish holiday celebrated as a commemoration of their liberation from God.

It might seem simple, but the easiest way to impress a guest could actually be your knife skills. Before we get to cutting - let's make sure you're comfortable handling a knife. Watch the video below for a quick refresher on proper knife handling techniques!
Knife skills are important, but why? Not only will you create beautiful meals, but your food will actually taste better, for a few reasons.
