This LA Weekly Flickr pool photo comes to you from photographer averagebetty, a lovely shot of a red bell pepper and a chef's knife. The photo is also from her blog, specifically from her blog post about how to chop without dulling your expensive Japanese blades. (If it's too late on that front, here's a great knife sharpening service.) And, of course, if you have any brilliant shots of food you've taken around town recently, you might consider uploading them on our Flickr pool. Never know where they might show up.
