For part one of this series I'm working on my onion dicing technique. With a little help from Gordon Ramsay (in digital form) I want to sort out my bad habits and improve the quality and speed of my cuts. Enjoy!

  • That was a good watch. My mum used to work in professional kitchens and she taught me, unsuccessfully, the chop-away-from-yerself rule. Once the technique becomes second nature, you can safely just keep adding speed. And then ultimately start chopping to music.

  • Good job. Believe it or not, I learned more from watching your video just now than I have from watching Ramsay's. Thanks!

    • Haha glad to hear that. He is a speedy chap. I find the zoomed in, out of focus editing style of his shows very fun to watch but yes, not great to learn from!

  • Stand too close while you chop them and they'll make you cry
