“Kind of Sad”: A Chef’s Thoughts on Kendall Jenner’s Cucumber-Cutting Technique
Sorry, but I need to talk about Kendall Jenner cutting produce. Last Friday, a clip of the reality TV star making herself a yummy snack — à la carte sliced cucumber — went viral because clearly, this woman has never cooked a meal.
Said clip, taken from the latest episode of The Kardashians on Hulu, ruthlessly exposes Jenner’s lack of knife skills. Instead of securing the gherkin by its girth and slicing it into circular pieces, she gingerly holds the tip of the fruit while attempting to sliver the thing into some sort of meatless carpaccio.
The video is totally ridiculous, but I’m not even mad about it! Netizens have been blasting Jenner’s cucumber-cutting attempt as some tragic byproduct of her wealth and privilege, but honestly, calm down — there are more pressing things happening in the world than a girl trying to get her crudité on. (Then again, I didn’t do my own laundry until college…)
It was easy for me to laugh off the video, but I’m no Eric Ripert. I wondered if actual chefs were horrified and perhaps disheartened by the reality TV star’s lack of culinary skill. So I hit up Nir Sarig, chef and founder of forthcoming restaurant ETI, for his thoughts (a quick scroll through his Instagram provides plentiful evidence of his chopping know-how).
“I put some thought into this and I went through a range of emotions,” he said. “But where I ended up is that Kendall not being able to cut a cucumber is kind of sad. It’s so fun to cook for yourself!” (“Good for her for trying,” Sarig added.)
In case you’re unclear on proper cucumber-cutting technique: “To properly and safely cut a cucumber, you first need to know what you want to do with it,” Sarig clarified. “You can dice it small for a tabbouleh, you can cut it diagonally for a niçoise, you can slice it into strips for a crudité. But yeah, it’s important to hold the cucumber by the long end while you chop far away from your hand.”
Rapper Wiz Khalifa Upgrades to All-New Los Angeles Mansion
Buyer Wiz Khalifa
Location Encino, Los Angeles, Calif.
Price $7.6 million
Specs 8,029 square feet, 6 bedrooms 7 bathrooms
Lot Size 0.48 acres
A little over three years ago, after some time spent bunking up in a $16,000-per-month Los Angeles rental, “Black and Yellow” rapper Cameron Jibril Thomaz — better known professionally as Wiz Khalifa — dropped $3.4 million on ultra-modern digs in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Encino.
Though Khalifa still owns that residence, as well as a place in his Pittsburgh hometown, he recently spent a tad over $7.6 million to upgrade into another glitzy mansion in the same area, only about three miles away. No word yet on whether he’s already custom-tailored the premises with some of his favored amenities — think a personal weed bar, recording studio and Steelers-themed game room, just to name a few.
With an estimated net worth of around $60 million — from his successful music career, along with his specifically bred Khalifa Kush marijuana strain and mobile Weed Farm game, where players can start and tend to their virtual crops — he probably can afford to add pretty much anything he likes!
Newly built this year, Khalifa’s modern farmhouse-style estate features six bedrooms and seven baths draped across more than 8,000 square feet of open-concept living space adorned throughout with wood-beam ceilings, blonde hardwood floors and designer light fixtures. A home office, gym, movie theater and detached guesthouse are among the many creature comforts.
Tucked away down a lengthy gated driveway, the two-story stucco and wood structure is fronted by a spacious motorcourt and an attached three-car garage — perfect for the singer’s mostly old-school auto collection, which according to Architectural Digest, includes a 1969 El Camino, Chevelle, some muscle cars and a Mercedes Benz.
A glassy front door resting beneath a porte-cochère opens to a double-height foyer. From there, an elegant living room boasts an eye-catching linear fireplace and sliding glass doors spilling out to the backyard and a formal dining room boasts a wet bar. The family room adjoins a sleekly designed gourmet kitchen, which is decked out with a center island, Thermador appliances, a service bar with double-sided seating and breakfast nook.
A striking glass-lined staircase heads upstairs, where the plush master retreat features a cozy fireside sitting area, mini-bar and dual showroom-style closets. Especially standing out is a spa-inspired bath equipped with dual vanities, an oval soaking tub, a massive glass-encased shower and private balcony.
As for the grounds, the nearly half-acre parcel hosts a Baja-shelf pool and spa surrounded by a grassy lawn, plus a covered lounge patio with fire-pit, an outdoor kitchen with a built-in barbecue and bar, a trellised dining area and basketball court. There’s also the aforementioned 450-square-foot guesthouse equipped with a kitchenette and bath.
