Hanukkah is coming to an end, the Christmas holiday is days away, and Kwanzaa and New Year’s Eve are right around the corner. Merriment is all around, and much of it centers around dining, and entertainment. Sometimes, that requires a bit of skill in the kitchen, specifically with equipment like knives. We have Chef Bill Collins in the studio with us today, who has a few tips for carving up a delicious meal for the holidays.
