It's been 3 years and I still don't any fancy equipment. Not because I don't want it (ha!) but because the equipment I have is still working from my old YouTube video.
To get started, you only need a few items for your kitchen (you probably already have these items).......
Chef's knife -Chop it up!
Produce brush-You can get one for $5 at Target
Food Processor- If you don't have a food processor, I would recommend one that holds at least 5 cups and wouldn't spend less than $50....in my experience the cheaper ones aren't very good. I have a Giada food processor...it's pretty good but I wouldn't mind upgrading.
