An easier way to chop an onion! [Demo by Chef John]

Friday, February 1st, 2013

I have always sort of felt like a tortoise in the kitchen, taking my sweet time with things like chopping vegetables to avoid any unfortunate and unnecessary trips to the emergency room.  I appreciate them when they are needed but, otherwise, I’m not a fan!

On our food blog, we started a vlog series, The Chef’s Table.  So far we have done two videos, and the first one has been so popular, I wanted to share it again here.

I avoid cooking when possible and whenever Chef John offers to do my prep work for me, I happily oblige!  You will see why:

An Easier Way to Chop an Onion

He’s good, isn’t he?  We are thinking about doing another one where he does the demo only to show how quickly he can chop an onion this way.  When he’s not teaching the method, he can go much faster!  I’m sure with practice, I could improve my speed.

Which way do you chop an onion, like either of the ways shown in the video or a different way?  Any other cooking tips you have or that you are interested in?  Leave a comment below or Ask The Chef here.
