How to slice a shallot (video)

One of the questions after my claw grip video was how to do it on a small vegetable, like a shallot or garlic clove.  Since a picture is worth a thousand words (and a moving picture is worth even more), I decided to make a few shallot videos.  Here is one on slicing

These fig and blue cheese tarts should be a wonderful opportunity to practice slicing shallots.

Ah, I was thinking about this while chopping garlic yesterday! Do you think you could do a garlic-chopping video? I understand the theory and can put it into practice quite happily on things the size of the shallot in this video, or bigger, but I can't get my head around how to do it properly on something as small as a garlic clove.

Hi Kake,

Yes, a garlic video is coming up soon.
