Keith Green

Keith loves the calm and focus that cooking offers him, and he finds every aspect of meal prep — choosing ingredients to cutting just so a very satisfying form of self-expression. A passionate carpenter as well as a passionate cook, he built two fabulous kitchens, indoors and outdoors, to give himself a stage. His performances earn him what matters most — kudos from those gathered round the family table, a table he also built himself.

What motivates your cooking?

I’ve always known that I cook to thrill. It’s that “Wow” you get when that platter is finally put in front of your family and your friends that makesit all worthwhile.

What do you think about at the cutting board?

When you pick up that knife and you put the tomato down on the cutting board, it isn’t just about slicing a tomato. It’s about the beginning of creating a meal, and you feel it from the minute you grab that knife.

Let’s talk about knives.

I don’t know whether we fit our hands to the knives, or we choose knives that fit our hands, but if you’re comfortable with you knife, you’re secure. And you’re thinking about what you’re making, not what you’re cutting.

What’s your moment?

My moment is that very first cut. My WÜSTHOF is the Aeon 8” cook’s knife.
