June 8, 2016 Dining No Comments Email Email

If you know your Pot-au-feu from your Pipérade, then you’ll know the key to any good French recipe is what is used to make it – and that applies to kitchen tools just as much as the ingredients! With Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day coming up on the 24th of June, what better way to celebrate than in true French style with the newest edition to the André Verdier Laguiole cutlery range – introducing the Debutant 2-Piece Kitchen Set which includes a paring knife and tomato knife with serrated blade.

Anna Millington, Marketing Manager at VGM International says, “Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day is a national holiday in France – with many festivities where friends and family gather to celebrate, and of course eat! André Verdier’s new kitchen set has come just in time for this big day amongst French communities worldwide. Beautiful to use and to lo

“All André Verdier Laguiole cutlery is 100% hand crafted in France from local materials, so you can be assured that the cutlery is completely authentic. Why not bring a bit of French tradition to your Australian gathering?” adds Anna.

The Debutant range, with its iconic Laguiole curved handle and elegant design make food prep easier and more delightful than ever. Each set is packaged in a European beech wood box and is available in two colour varieties – Ivory for a more classic look or Mixed (Violet and Lime) for the boldest foodies. The 2-Piece Kitchen Set includes:

1. Paring Knife – This knife allows for great precision when peeling fruits and vegetables, slicing garlic cloves or shallots. It is also perfect for those intricate culinary tasks such as detailed cutting or including design or patterns into food surfaces.

2. Tomato Knife – A tapered, serrated knife designed specifically to slice through tomatoes and other smooth skinned fruits and vegetables. The unique serrated edge allows the knife to penetrate the skin of the tomato quickly and easily without crushing the flesh and jeopardizing the shape of the tomato.


Founded in 1858, André Verdier is one of France’s oldest cutlery manufacturers. The wide range of Laguiole professional cutlery all feature professional quality blades made from X46Cr13 mirror polished stainless steel for superior durability and rust resistance. Handles are made from ABS, which is highly shock resilient and fixed using 5 stainless rivets.

The André Verdier Debutant 2-Piece Kitchen Set is available for an RRP of $29.95 at www.everten.com.au as well as local independent kitchenware and gift retailers. Visit www.vgminternational.com.au/stockists for the full list of stockists.
