Knife Skills are the first thing every chef learns.
It doesn’t matter what you’re cooking, there is always something to cut. If you are able to cut your vegetables more quickly and more efficiently, it will make cooking everything that much easier!
Young chefs typically practice with three vegetables: potatoes, onions, and carrots. This is because if you can cut a potato, an onion, and a carrot, you can pretty much cut any vegetable out there.
