Sure, you already how to chop vegetables and use a knife, but this infographic can help you improve your knife skills beyond mere slicing and dicing. While there are a lot of important things to pick up overall (in fact, most cooking skills will spend a lot of time educating you on simple knife work), the most important knife skill anyone can learn is how to avoid cutting yourself.
As this infographic points out, holding the food with your knuckles turned in and resting the knife against them is a chef’s secret when it comes to avoid cutting yourself. Once you have that skill down, you can learn to julienne, brunoise and batonnet with the best of them. Since this Illustrated Bites creation is only labeled as part one when it comes to knife skills, with any luck, the site will add more useful knife tricks in the near future.
