King Cake near Durham NC?

Harvest place does babies too. We have 3 kids so they put extras in for us. I called them just now to try and see if they will do strawberry cream cheese or praline n cheese filled ones. they r closed but left them my number. Im a chef at Duke DFC and want to hook up my employees...without having to do it myself..since we are basicly an obesity clinic I didnt thin the smell of pastries would be too nice:/ Keep me posted on other bakeries, i tried a bunch! most are not very good.

What kind of kitchen knives do you use?

I have a set of Cutco Pearl handle knives. I have been using them for about 9 years now and I absolutely love them. I was skeptical at first when a saleman from my Church first offered to show them to me, he knew I had a catering company and I figured I was just a mark! So he gave them to me to try out for a few days, and I never gave them back! I bought a set of 6 knives, and my vegetable chopper is my alltime favorite! of all my knives. I have a couple Henckels, a few Vintage Chicago Cutlery from my grand father, and a few other odd n ends. My paring knife and boning khife from Cutco and my Hunting knife from them have cleaned more Deer and fish than you could ever imagine, and I have yet to have to sharpen them! They are better than any other sportsman knives on the market in my opinion, and i do agree with most posters, that it is personal choice. These knives just fit my hands.
