Cooking Basics

Onions - finely chopped

Cut the onion with its outer skin removed vertically in half, and thinly slice cut-side down without cutting as far as the base. Then lay the knife flat and insert horizontal cuts, finely chopping from end to end.

Carrots - julienned

Cut into 4 to 5 cm (about 2 in.) lengths and peel each piece. It will be safer and easier to cut if the edge is thinly sliced off to create a flat surface and this cut surface is placed face down. Slice into 1 to 2 mm (0.5 in.) thick planks, stack by sliding these gradually, and then thinly julienne from end to end.
