Preparing Vegetables for Cutting
Prepare the vegetables by washing and peeling.
Top and tail the veg.
Now depending on the cut, slice the veg into required lengths.
On one side trim off a slice so that you have a flat surface to work with.
Now trim all the sides to produce an even-sided length.
From here you have the basis to cut any of the different vegetable cuts with ease.
Tournée (pronounced tour-nay) is French for the word “turned.”
The term refers to a method of cutting and peeling root vegetables into a barrel shape of 7 equal sides, using a paring or Shaping Knife.
The classic French technique ensures even cooking while also being pleasing to the eye.
