1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    FWIW, I think it would be a tacky briefcase as well.

    His iPad.

    Yes that's what it says...Ripert has had a long relationship with MAc and often recmmends Wusthof for recreational cooks...but the case contains a bit more than that: for instance, the third knife from the left (following two MAC knives) is a Masanobu...and the boning knife certainly apprears to be a Henckel.

    I have a goyard case with a magnifying mirror on the inside of the top shell, an EVA foam custom molded to fit a vaseline jar, a LAcie USB drive loaded with the best of the best, and then a secret compartment underneath with room for 5 standard sized print magazines. Never leave home without it.

    Just put in an order for a set of custom Horween shell cordovan cases to hold my special hexagonal-handle Onani-chama set made by a certain Mr. Takamura. They take a bit more discipline and care, not to mention skill, over your garden variety Fleshlight.

    I would use a Zero-Halliburton case. But that's just me. Still, cool post.

    I don't really understand why you need something like that. Does he go to people's houses and cook? Does he not trust his employees to leave them at the restaurant?

    Ripert cooks in a lot of places. Heck, I bring knives when I go cook at another's house (and sometimes I just have one with me if a guest on Thanksgiving, too) -- and I'm no Ripert. ~ H
