Galantine is an elaborate preparation that dates back to 17th century France. They were originally prepared by deboning a whole chicken, then combining its meat with minced veal, truffles, pork fat, and other ingredients, plus a lot of seasonings, to make what's called a forcemeat and then stuffing this forcemeat into the skin of the chicken. It was then tied up, wrapped in bacon and poached in a rich stock that would eventually jell when cooled.
Few cutting tools come greater than the utility knife. The knife is perfect for almost anything – slicing, dicing, and chopping. But we can’t expect a knife to do everything. So for all its versatility, the utility knife is not suited for mincing and smaller tasks like peeling the skin of vegetables, for instance.
A cutting board is one of any chef’s most critical cutting tools. Investing in a good, durable one makes cutting more comfortable and enjoyable. But when it comes to cutting boards, there are many food preparation surfaces you can choose from.
