Question: What utensils do you always have on hand?
Jacques Pepin: Most important tool are your hands without any question. And then after you need a knife; you need a knife to board to shuck on; you need a _____, and that’s basically what you need. That being said of course, I have about 150 knives at my house; but you need basically three knives – a chopping knife; and then a utility knife, about seven inch; and a paring knife, you know? So . . . And preferably sharp one, too.
