Advanced knife skills

Special.Fork's picture

When you learn and apply some of the basic knife skills, working in the kitchen becomes so much more pleasant. I'll never forget the first time I learned the easy way to dice an onion or shallot -- it was an epiphany!

How could I have been so uninformed? I needed to learn more.

If you want to learn more, and are ready to go a little step beyond basic chopping and slicing, here are a couple of cutting techniques that are essential to some of the more refined dishes that require a bit more precision.

In this advanced knife work segment I will not be demonstrating knife-throwing. That comes much later in a chef's training when you are taught "management skills."
