We’re teaming up with Shun Cutlery to celebrate the launch of their brand-new Premier Grey Knife Collection, which has all the slicers and dicers you need to tackle any kitchen task. Here, we’re sharing the knife mistakes we’ve made—and learned from—over the years, so you can keep your own blades in tip-top shape.


My cramped galley kitchen is filled to the brim with all sorts of cookware, tools, storage containers, pantry goods, and gadgets. Some of those things I reach for on the daily (nonstick skillet and electric kettle: check and check), while a couple I’m ashamed to say I’ve used just a handful of times.

Even though butternut squash is most closely associated with crisp, cool weather and cozy dishes (like this hearty lamb stew, for starters), it's actually available all year round.

"Despite what the name might suggest," writes former Food52 editor Lindsay-Jean Hard, "winter squash doesn't grow in the winter.
