Knives out: knife skills with Wölfe Cutlery
Transform the way you approach food preparation armed with a chef's essential instrument.
Learn the fundamental techniques of knife handling, from proper grip and posture to precise cutting and slicing.
Discover the importance of knife selection, maintenance, and sharpening; ensuring your tools are always ready for peak performance.
Enhance your dexterity, speed, and efficiency in the kitchen; empowering you to tackle any ingredient with confidence.
Emerge equipped with the essential techniques to elevate your culinary creations to a new level of precision and finesse.
Wölfe Cutlery was created after years of consulting with professional cooks and chefs.
We asked them what attributes would comprise their ideal home cooking knife. Their answers? “Great weight and balance,” “holds a great edge and is easy to maintain,” and most importantly, “comfortable in hand, even after hours of use.” Our focus has been on providing those in the culinary industry with the tools
they desire at a price most can afford.
We are also excited for nonprofessional cooking enthusiasts to have access to professional-grade tools in their homes.
X50CrMoV15 carbon alloy steel was chosen, which is hard enough to maintain an excellent edge but not so hard that it is brittle and prone to chipping or difficult to maintain for someone using their knives daily.
Mr. Yellowhorse has been commissioned by Wölfe Cutlery to design an exclusive knife just for the Key West Food & Wine Festival, exclusive only to our guests.
We are so excited to offer such a special piece of art to the 2024 Festival!
Knives can be pre-ordered now.

The prolonged contact of the rum with the sherry-soaked wood in the barrel imparts it with unique flavor and depth, making it a fast favorite of rum aficionados who thirst for something out of the ordinary.
What is cooperage in winemaking?
Cooperage is not merely a flavoring component in wine but is also a key player in sculpting a wine via lees contact and oxygenation, even when adding no flavor. Thus, the type and thickness of wood and size of vessel is also quite important.

Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, 1st Marquis of Dalí de Púbol
(11 May 1904 – 23 January 1989),
known professionally as Salvador Dalí, was a prominent Spanish surrealist born in
Figueres, Catalonia, Spain.
Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, at times in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media. Dalí attributed his "love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes" to an "Arab lineage", claiming that his ancestors were descendants of the Moors.
Dalí was highly imaginative, and also enjoyed indulging in unusual and grandiose behavior. To the dismay of those who held his work in high regard, and to the irritation of his critics, his eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork.
Ever heard of surrealist fine dining? This must-have reprint of Les diners de Gala reveals the exotic flavors and elaborate imaginings behind the legendary dinner parties of Salvador and Gala Dalí. With recipes from such leading Paris restaurants as La Tour d’Argent and Maxim’s, a special section on aphrodisia, and bespoke illustrations from Dalí himself, this book is at once an artwork, a practical cookbook, and a delicious morsel of multisensory pleasure.
The menu this evening is based loosely on Dalís Cookbook

Use your imagination, anything is possible
completely outlandish costumes
$425.00 per person
Published only once in 1973, Les Diners de Gala was a dream fulfilled for surrealist artist Salvador Dali who claimed at the age of 6 that he wanted to be a chef. The bizarro cookbook pairs 136 recipes over 12 chapters (the 10th of which is dedicated to aphrodisiacs) with his exceptionally strange illustrations and collages created especially for the publication.
The artworks depict towering mountains of crayfish with unsettling overtones of cannibalism, an unusual meeting of a swan and a toothbrush in a pastry case, and portraits of Dali himself mingling with chefs against decadent place settings. Recipes include such delicacies as “Thousand Year Old Eggs”, “Veal Cutlets Stuffed With Snails”, “Frog Pasties”, and
“Toffee with Pine Cones”.
Dali is widely known for his opulent dinner parties thrown with his wife Gala, events that were almost more theatrical than gustatory.
Guests, many of the celebrities, were required to wear completely outlandish costumes and an accompaniment of wild animals often roamed free around the dinner table. Despite the unusual ingredients and preparation methods, many of the old school recipes in Les Diners de Gala originated in some of the top restaurants in Paris at the time including Lasserre, La Tour d’Argent, Maxim’s, and Le Train Bleu.
