As you might remember, a few weeks ago we did a video with Danny demonstrating the basics of knife skills. Many of you wrote to say how useful you found it. That’s what we hoped would happen! Have you been practicing?
Here is the second installment of the knife skills series: how to dice vegetables. Specifically, Danny shows you how to do a large dice, medium dice, small dice, and brunoise. He goes as slowly as he can, but he’s still fast. You might want to watch a couple of times.
And then practice!
(You can also enjoy the sounds of Lu in the background, and then the Wiggles! Sorry to all of you parents who have heard your fair share of the boys from Australia.)
And there’s more!
As you might know, Greek Gods yogurt is one of the sponsors of this site. We’ve chosen sponsors whose food we truly enjoy and buy regularly. (There are more recommended food companies coming soon.) We have Greek Gods yogurt in the refrigerator all the time and we think you might enjoy doing that too.
Part of our sponsorship agreement includes giveaways. You want some free stuff? Here it is.
We’re always advocating that you play in the kitchen, instead of feeling serious and intent all the time. Well, the good folks at Greek Gods yogurt want you to play too. They’re giving away an All About You Play and Spa day, worth up to $250! (care for a yogurt facial with your massage?)
Hey, I want this prize.
Five runners-up will win Greek Gods yogurt t-shirts and coupons for the yogurt.
So enjoy this video of Danny showing you how to make a lovely yogurt dip for summer. Then, leave us a comment about why you would like a play day. (Don’t we all need one?)
We’ll choose the winners from the comments here, as well as on Twitter. Come on over to Twitter between 9:30 and 11:30 PST every morning next week for the chance to win this prize (and others!) by leaving me comments about how you are playing in the kitchen. We’ll use Random.org to choose the winners and announce them here next Friday.
Keep practicing those knife skills!
