Tips, TRICKS OF THE TRADE

Old School vs Culinary Arts School

Are you ready to chop?

Slice and Dice is not just grabbing a knife and cutting board. Safety is key. One thing I learned is to put a kitchen towel or a non-slip mat under the cutting board so it doesn’t move when slicing, dicing, cutting or chopping. The other important factor is how you’re holding your knife. All these years, I learned I had been holding it wrong. Don’t hold it like a baseball bat, golf club or the steering wheel. Let your thumb hold the end of the blade and keep the other four fingers on the handle as in the picture far from the blade of the knife.
