Cooking Basics

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.

Garlic - mincing

Remove the skin of the garlic clove, and cut vertically in half. Then remove the core, slice thinly cut-side down without cutting as far as the base part, and lay the knife flat and insert horizontal cuts. Finally, mince from end to end.
