Bell Pepper Video -- slicing and dicing

YouTube link: Slicing and Dicing Bell Peppers

Videos you might want to watch before this one:
The barley salad I mentioned last week is a good opportunity to practice dicing a pepper.  This is an ultimate test of your knife skills since it needs a brunoise (1/8 inch dice) of zucchini, minced shallots, and plenty of minced herbs.  Luckily, there is not much active work besides chopping and you'll be rewarded with a delicious and healthy meal.  Ratatouille is another lovely dish, especially in the summer.

You cut very nicely. I have been meaning to tell you this. It's like you are a professional slicer .. it there is such a thing:-)

yes, there is such a thing as a "professional slicer," it's called the prep cook -- the lowest job in the restaurant that pays minimal wage. That's what I used to do in a restaurant after my day job when I wanted to improve my cooking :) It was the most educational experience.
