Family fight: how do you cut the onion?
«Dear, how are you cutting that onion?»
Now, this can sound very silly or very familiar…. It’s depend from your gender, your familiarity with the kitchen – meaning actually cooking, with real vegetables and stuff, no microwave – and how much you pay attention to details.
I grew up watching people cooking… people that all use to cut vegetables in the same way, and I took their method.
That’s why, the very first time I saw my husband cutting an onion, I started laughing asking “What the hell are you doing??”.
For me, he just cuts the onion in the wrong way, as well as watermelon and… I’m sure there is something else….
However, I am a very self-critical, and after laughing at him – first to his face, and hiding later – I started wondering if I really was right.
I’m pretty much sure I saw chefs on TV doing it MY WAY…. but I really would like to hear from you.
I’ll be fair, I won’t tell which is my way, so you can’t vote against or for me!
Onion cutting technique #1: cut the onion down the centre vertically
Onion cutting technique #2: cut the ends off, and cut the onion across horizontally
