Cooking Basics

Lotus root - rounds

Remove the skin of the lotus root, place it in water, and slice at consistent widths from end to end.

Green asparagus - peeling off the outer skin

The skin from the root to about 1/3 to 1/2 way up the asparagus spear is hard, so use a peeler to remove this. Use a peeler rather than a knife to achieve thin and even peeling.

Shiitake mushrooms - removing the stem

The stem can be easily removed by folding it over and pulling it off at the base, where it is attached to the cap. You can also cut it off from under the cap with a knife.
