Anthony Bourdain seems to have the answers to all of life's questions.
The Unicorn Frappucino-hating chef has previously schooled us in the art of getting kids to try adventurous foods (his daughter was sucking down oysters at the age of three) and he's also taught us why Kobe beef sliders are the worst trend to ever exist.
But Bourdain's latest piece of advice is perhaps the most useful tip yet. At the premiere of his new documentary Wasted! The Story of Food Waste, he d that the key ingredient to any kitchen is a good chef's knife — even if you're not an expert.
"As a starter chef knife, The Global is pretty good for a first timer," says Bourdain.

Praised for its ability to slice through both tough vegetables and proteins, the lightweight, stainless steel G-2 is a Japanese knife madefine-tuned blade that's as sharp as Anthony Bourdain's wit. And if it's good enough for Bourdain, it's good enough for us.
The documentary Wasted! The Story of Food Waste will release in select theaters and on VOD on October 13.
