Please, a little advise from the Mexican Kitchen!
Our son is a chef, currently living and working in Melbourne Australia.
This year I wanted to plan ahead and get him a unique handcrafted Mexican gift for his birthday.
I have heard of the Ojeda family in the village Sayula, south of Guadalajara's.
They are reputed to be outstanding knife makers for many generations.
But I don't know much more about them than that.
So a few questions before we go to the trouble of driving over from Patzcuaro.
Does anyone on this board have knives from them?
I would love to hear what you think of them.
Any chefs or foodies out there with a recommendation for the right handcrafted knife for a young chef?
