Giveaway: Wüsthof Classic 7-Piece Traveler Set

November 2, 2015

Wusthof traveler set

The holidays are coming, and often during this season of celebration, I find myself cooking in unfamiliar kitchens. Over the years, I’ve strategically planted good knives in the kitchens of my sister and parents to make food prep easier when I visit. However, when life takes me to other kitchens (particularly if we’ve rented a vacation house for our gathering), I’ve been known to bring a sharp knife along with me to ease meal prep.

This holiday season, instead of employing my “chef knife in the luggage” trick, I’ll be tucking a Wüsthof Classic Traveler Set into my bag*. This seven piece kit includes a six inch Cook’s Knife, a five inch Serrated Utility Knife, a three and a half inch Paring Knife, a pair of Kitchen Shears, a Waiter’s Corkscrew, and a handy little sharpener.

It also comes with a handy little carrying case that I’m a little bit obsessed with (I’ve got it tucked into the crook of my arm as I write this post).

  • I’ll be making the pies. After spending many years perfecting my pie crust recipe and method, the family will accept no other pies except mine!

  • EVERY year we have a cranberry mold contest. The siblings grab a cranberry mold, cranberries, sugar and water; then, whoever’s cranberry sauce stands, wins!!

  • Wow, that’s so cool! That feeling when you realize, too late, that there aren’t any sharp knives … Ugh. So I just host, lol. Except Thxgiving, when my sis cooks and I only think about pie…

  • It will just be our family of 4 so I will be doing chicken and all the favorites including a healthy sweet potato dish! And a couple desserts.

  • Sadly, I’m having surgery the Friday before Thanksgiving, so I will not be making anything. I will be on the good drugs, and I will expect everyone to bring pie if they come anywhere near my house. Pumpkin, pecan, or apple are preferable, but I’m not too picky when it comes to pie 😉

  • We’re going to my parents’ retirement community for Thanksgiving, so will cook a turkey and all the trimmings for Christmas dinner this year. But I share your frustration with bad knives in far-flung locales – a travel set sounds dandy!

  • I’ll be making the turkey this year for the first time in 20 years! Very intimidating. 🙂 Wish me luck!

  • Two Thanksgiving dinners: Nov 26 and 28: The children have requested several special desserts: Mincemeat Tri-corner Hat Tarts, Lemon Cake, Apple Pie w/crumb topping, and a Slab-Cherry Pie made with my canned cherry pie filling. #2 dinner rave requested a baked ham rather than turkey. Oh yes, there is always room for pumpkin pie with droplets of fresh whipped cream. (smile)

  • I’ll be making pies, I always make the pies. Pumpkin, apple, and usually something else just to keep things interesting. I had no idea Wustof made a travel set! I might just have to buy this if I’m not the lucky winner. I take knives whenever I travel, nothing is worse than being stuck in a kitchen with a dull knife set.

  • I just found out that my dad made no plan for Thanksgiving, so I’m cooking everything and then we leave the next day for a big family trip. I’m weirdly excited about the challenge.

  • Making simple roasted sweet potatoes with Spanish smoked paprika. No marshmallows. No brown sugar. No cinnamon. Wheew.

  • Making memories! I’m travelling back to the US from my new home abroad, and as such am off the hook for cooking. Looking forward to the journey!

  • I’m traveling 600 miles for Thanksgiving this year. I’ll probably bring some of my home-canned goods, but won’t be doing any of the actual cooking.

  • I’m going to try my hand at a chocolate bourbon pecan pie this year! I have to work so that’s going to be the only thing I’ll get to make.

  • That set is beautiful!
    For Thanksgiving, we travel to the party. I always bring something home canned, or in the case of pumpkin butter, frozen.

  • This is the first time in a few years I probably won’t be making anything for Thanksgiving, or at least not anything special. We just made a huge move and don’t have folks around here to spend the day with. Also my oven doesn’t work. I’m actually looking forward to it, tho, ’cause we’re finally in our own house!

  • Love this travellers set. I’ve had my eye on it for some time. I got my first Wusthof knife for Christmas last year and I’m hooked.

    For the holidays this year I’m going to make apple pies with the apple pie filling I canned. It will be the first time my dessert will be from canned items in the garden.

  • This is the coolest item! Would travel with me all the time close and far.
    But this thanksgiving we will stay put and smoke a turkey for two. And bake my favorite apple pie. Leftovers will last a week, but that’s ok, I will get creative until the bird is gone.

  • I’m usually in charge of the corn bread and two pies (apple-cranberry and pecan). There was a malted pecan pie recipe in Bon Appetit a few years ago that I use, which is way less sweet than regular pecan pie and it’s amazing.

  • Ah, we’re missing Thanksgiving this year. We have to fly down to Palm Springs to get my husband’s mom’s house ready to sell. But maybe I’ll make us a little two person Thanksgiving dinner in a couple of weeks.

  • I plan on making a cherry pie this year, pie crust has always been a challenge for me so hoping that my attempt will be a sucess.

  • Last year, our youngest son went on deployment overseas. He recently returned home last month and will be coming home for Thanksgiving. Will be doing a wonderful traditional dinner to celebrate his return!

  • This is the first year I’m not going to my parents or in-laws for Thanksgiving! So I haven’t thought much yet about what we’re making for Thanksgiving–maybe a spatchcocked roast chicken, or turkey if we still really want to do turkey?

  • We are getting together with family & friends. We’ll be smoking a turkey and making a sourdough stuffing with dates & sausage. Mom’s already taking on the our duty!

  • I make everything. I am a total control freak. Cook’s Illustrated turkey recipe, stuffing (out of bird), mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce (already made and jarred, including quince and orange zest), roasted Brussels sprouts, rolls, and pumpkin pie. BOO-YA!

  • I’m making travel plans… But look forward to all the yummy things others will make… And all the things I could make with this brand new set!!

  • Cranberry-orange-ginger sorbet – it started as leftover sauce years ago, but we soon decided we liked it better as sorbet. With ginger ale, it makes terrific punch!

    1. You are a genius! Leftover cranberry sauce into sorbet; I would never have thought of that in a million years.

  • My favorite salad to go along with the turkey. It has white rice, shrimp, celery, green olives, enough mayo to hold it together a little and lemon pepper. Then you top it with a russian vinegrette dressing.
    Thanks for offering the giveaway. That’s a sweet little set 🙂

  • I LOVE Thanksgiving!! Every year, it just me, hubby, & mom, yet I still make green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, applesauce, & pumpkin pie — all from our garden or items we’ve canned. I also make cranberry/orange relish, gravy, stuffing, roasted root veggies, & pecan pie. Hubby’s job is smoking the turkey — it’s a fair trade in my book! 😉

  • I will be working Thanks Giving this year unfortunately so I will be making a sandwich for lunch unfortunately, I am hoping for left over Turkey from an early turkey feast a bit of miracle whip and wheat bread, my favorite post thanksgiving treat. Sorry it is not more elaborate but that is the truth.

  • I will be making cornbread dressing. Love it so much better than stuffing. Excited to have our son home who is serving in the military. Been a year since he was home. Really love this set of knives.

  • I have totally different plans this year so I don’t know what I’m making! I will be hosted by someone who is gluten free so I need to start looking up dessert ideas…

  • I’ll definitely be making a classic stuffing – it’s my favorite part. Not sure about the rest of the meal because it’s just my husband and me this year, I think a turkey might be a bit much.

  • I’ll be making crumb-topped apple pie and a great knife will make the slicing easier.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  • I’ve been in charge of sweet potatoes for years, otherwise one of my husband’s relatives does the canned yams and fluff routine (ew). I’ll also make a pan of my mother’s potato filling because it just isn’t Thanksgiving without it.

  • I will be doing the turkey for our family day, and probably will do the cranberry sauce because yuck on the commercial cans. Past that, it will depend on circumstances.

  • I’ll do dinner rolls, the gravy and the cranberry sauce. I don’t know if I’ll get to do the turkey or not. I hope so.

  • We are hosting Thanksgiving this year. All of our guests will be traveling to be with us, so we will probably make most of the meal. For sure we will make the Cooks Illustrated make ahead mashed potatoes. It’s mostly butter, heavy cream and a few potatoes 😉

  • I’m not sure what I’ll be making this year since I’m not hosting Thanksgiving, but when I host, my knives get a HUGE workout. Everything from chopping vegetables for dressing to slicing root veggies for roasting. We’re going to be buying an RV next spring because we want to start camping and I’ve been looking for a good way to take decent knives on the road. This set looks PERFECT!!

  • oh my goodness – I need this so very badly. I travel a LOT for work and for weeks at a time, so I try to book hotels with kitchenettes so I can do some food preparation.

    I don’t celebrate US Thanksgiving, so I won’t be preparing anything for it, and didn’t do anything for Canadian Thanksgiving this year because of my travel schedule, but this weekend is my version of Stir-Up Sunday, when I start making my fruitcakes (I use the Fruitcake Haters Fruitcake, and it is very popular)…have to start them a bit early so they’re ready to give away mid-December.

  • I’ll be at my sister’s, so I’m responsible for the wild rice, the date nut bread, and the gravy (and the turkey soup for Saturday!).

  • I’ll be smoking a turkey on the grill. It makes the best turkey with the most awesome leftovers and the smoked turkey soup is to die for!

  • I’m making a dry brined herb butter turkey with a pomegranate glaze. This would be so great. I like to rent apartments when I travel and they always have the worst knives.

  • My family travels from NYC to my cousin’s house upstate for Thanksgiving each year. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and being able to be away from the city at my cousin’s picturesque house in country makes it all the more special. I am always responsible for the vegetable sides and a desert. This year I’ll be making roast potatoes with carrots and parsnips. Parsnips are one of my favorite vegetables and are incredibly underrepresented in home cooking. They add something special to my roast vegetable medley, which I think will go great with turkey.

  • We always go to my parents’ for the traditional feast, then have a more relaxed dinner at home with my in laws the next day. For the first I’ll probably make either my mother in law’s roasted sweet potatoes with apples or a pumpkin pie, for the second, beef and barley soup and homemade oatmeal bread.

  • Well, I’m the Mom LOL So I make most of the food!! But the one thing I am excited about making again this year is my Apple Sage Dressing. Now I am probably not the first person to think about sauteing chopped apples with my onions to add to my sage dressing, but last year it was a first for me and such a big hit!!

  • I’m excited bc both kids will be home for Thanksgiving this year! Four whole days!!!! They have already made their food requests. Thanksgiving will be ham with mustard sauce, roasted chicken, potato bake, roasted sweet potatoes, cream corned, carrots, and something green (not sure what yet.) Dessert will be spice cookies and pumpkin dip. Maybe a pumpkin pie with a gingersnap crust too.

  • For Thanksgiving, I’ll be making memories. Grandchildren, friends, family all brought together with good food. But it is the company more than the food that really matters.

  • This Thanksgiving one of my aunts sent me a link for making bread in the shape of a cornucopia, so the challenge has been set! 🙂

  • I will be making EVERYTHING! My favorite thing I make every year, pretty much for me alone, is a cranberry sauce with tawny port and lots of lemon. Delish.

  • We always have some kind of stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy for Thanksgiving, not sure what the protein and veggies will be yet. I have been shopping for a couple of knives, these sound just wonderful.

  • I’m planning on making my world famous sweet potato dinner rolls, and then I’m looking at pie recipes that involve marshmallow toppings, because I want to whip out my torch!
