Over the last 6 years, NTD Television’s International Chinese Culinary Competition has become a significant outdoor cultural event in Times Square. The competition brought together the most recognized Chinese master chefs from around the world over two days.
Building on this success, NTD partnered with Epoch Times to create Taste Asia and launch Asian Restaurant Month—expanding its focus on Asian food and culture.
Asian Restaurant Month involves the best local Asian restaurants, celebrating the month with special food deals, traditional family recipes, and exclusive off-menu dishes.

ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT
Cooking. It can be a hobby, a passion, a career or just a necessity, whether you are cooking on a national TV show, at a five-star restaurant, or like most of us, in your home kitchen, every cook or chef has one thing in common. It is universally accepted that the right tools can be the difference between enjoying the process and struggling through it.
Using the correct knife is incredibly important in cooking. Different cuisines and foods require different specialty knives, for example you wouldn’t want to use a small paring knife to cut onions or an unsharpened butcher’s knife to carve a holiday turkey, the results would most likely be disastrous. If you ask a chef what their most prized possession is, they will probably tell you it is their knives, a selection of knives that they’ve spent many years collecting. With so many choices, it can be daunting, how do you, a home cook, know the best to choose?
On Designing Spaces™ famous and talented chef Maneet Chauhan joined us to help take some of the mystery out of choosing the right knife. Her preferred brand is world renowned Gunter Wilhelm®, a choice of professional chefs everywhere, including the White House Chef Tour™ Chef Guy Mitchell.
It’s safe to say that Gunter Wilhelm knives are a spot on choice. The high quality is professional chef approved yet priced for the home cook as well. Chef Chauhan demonstrates the importance of using the right knife. If you have the right knife, it does half the work for you. The best part is that you don’t have to be a professional chef to enjoy using a professional grade knife.
Choosing a well-made high-quality knife, such as the ones Gunter Wilhelm produces, will ensure you have the best knife possible for any culinary challenge you may face for many years to come.
