April 11, 2008, Newsletter Issue #364: Julia Child's Tip For Fancy Cuts

Tip of the Week

Julia Child also focused on dazzling cuts and shapes in her dishes. For example, she offered this tidbit for fancy cutting of tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables. When you are trying to do a tricky dicing or small julienne, take a peeled tomato, quarter it through the stem, and halve the quarters into wedges. Take each wedge and slide your knife just under the pulp to leave a smooth surface that you can shape any way you wish.
