How To: Use a Knife

18 Dec

As many of you know, my family and I rarely eat out. It is just too hard to find food that tastes as good or is better for you at any restaurant than what we can make at home. It just doesn’t seem worth it to us. But we know of so many people that don’t cook at home. They are dependent on dining out, fast food, and prepackaged and prepared products at the grocery store. This is just so unnecessary. Cooking at home is easy and fun, once you get over the initial learning stages. Cooking at our home is usually a family event too. Everyone can get involved. The older kids are learning how to season, chop vegetables and use the stove, while the younger ones wash vegetables, put ingredients on the table, throw away or recycle the waste, and help mix and stir.

One thing that seems to stop everybody in their tracks is using a knife. Yes, it takes some practice; but what doesn’t? And in this case, learning a new skill help you live a much healthier and more satisfying life.

I found this handy mini-video on how to use a kitchen knife. It’s very short and demonstrates clearly the basic method for cutting virtually anything.

So let’s all stop avoiding the kitchen and get in there and whip up a delicious meal. You can do it!
