Courtney Smith

Courtney cooks to express herself, but even more so to show her love for family and close friends. She’s so good at it that her extended family, all of whom live nearby, rely on her when it comes to cooking for gatherings. She’s the boss. She’s taken a talent for art (she’s a former art teacher) and found a new way of expressing herself in the beautifully styled cheese plates she creates.

Where did your passion for cooking come from?

I went to art school and taught art for many years. Cooking for me is a very creative activity.

What do you think about at the cutting board?

I’m a busy mom, and cutting and food prep is the only time when I’m just completely focused. I’ve got food in front of me and the knife in my hand. It’s meditative.

Let’s talk about creativity in the kitchen?

When I’m cutting food and cooking, I’m changing it — transforming it into something different. To me it’s similar to the process of making art. Cooking is my love language — it’s the best way I can say “I love you.”

What does having a good knife mean?

A good knife is a treasure. I would hope my sons would want to use this knife that their mother used to cut with. It would make me proud.

What’s your moment?

My moment is breaking bread with my family. My WÜSTHOF is the Classic 9” double-serrated bread knife.

CLASSIC
Double-serrated bread knife
The Classic 9" double-serrated bread knife has double the number of serrations or a serration within the serration. The design of the double-serrated bread knife glides through crusty breads with minimal crumbs without damaging the inside. This knife can also be used on delicate produce or even angel food cake.
