LA Weekly’s Squid Ink has a fascinating look inside one of our head chef’s favorite carrying cases. Most chefs place their knives in a standard metal case, but not our Jet Tila. No way! Instead, Jet learned about Jonny “Coffin” Edwards and his company Coffin Case, which creates coffin-shaped guitar cases for rockers and other anti-establishment characters.
Since Jet is a rockstar of the culinary world, it makes sense he would forgo the standard knife cases and instead go with one of Jonny’s signature creations as you see above.
As Jet explained to LA Weekly’s Daina Beth Solomon, “I got tired of using toolkits…I needed something to show my personality.” Have Jet’s peers in the culinary world noticed? .“Big Time.”
