Chopping an onion

Posted on

On my way home from work this morning I stopped at the grocery store to “shop the perimeter” and restock my fridge after returning home from vacation. While there I picked up a new chef’s knife. So of course when I got home I looked for videos of fun ways to improve my chopping skills and came across this gem from Jamie Oliver. He’s one of my favorite chefs. I mean really, how could you not love the British accent with his enthusiasm? I’ve appreciated his efforts in the US lately to decrease the amount of processed foods served in schools and teaching families how to prepare healthy, inexpensive meals using “real food”. Awesome, right? In another video he mentions that home cooks need three knives – a chef’s knife, a paring knife and a serrated bread knife – and poked fun at the large knife blocks we all have in our kitchens that are full of smaller knives we never touch. Um, guilty! Check out the video – it blew my mind! Who knew there were multiple ways to chop an onion depending on your dish? Well, here’s to learning new skills for improved efficiency in the kitchen.

For more great how-to’s check out Jamie’s Home Cooking Skills and tune in to Food Tube this afternoon at 2:30 CST (8:30 GMT) for a cooking session on turkey! He’s so fun! And great to follow on Instagram!
