My partner Marilena is our undisputed home chef, but I’m a great sous. The part of cooking that I enjoy the most is cutting, slicing, and chopping vegetables.
The technique is kind of easy to pick up, but you’ll always suck at it if you can’t rely on a good quality, sharp knife. Because the secret of cutting precisely and efficiently is just letting the knife do its job while you focus on not chopping your fingers off.
It’s all about the tools, sometimes.
