Slide 1: ThrifTy Cooking for frugal living 3/9/11
Slide 2: Are Your Knife Skills Holding You Back in the Kitchen? I have cut myself unintentionally hundreds of times. When you cook professionally and you’re constantly under the gun to produce more and more 3/9/11
Slide 3: it happens, and sometimes it’s serious. Under normal household circumstances it is totally possible to perform like a pro and never cut yourself. All you have to do is follow a few simple 3/9/11
Slide 4: If you hold a knife in your right hand, the left hand must be very disciplined or else it gets punished – and vice versa. Rule number one, tuck your left thumb behind your left fingers at all times 3/9/11
Slide 5: The thumb could be cut badly, if you forget to do this. Visualize a half inch, hunk of thumb rolling across your cutting board and counter! 3/9/11
Slide 6: Rule number two, be sure your knife is very sharp. A dull knife requires unnecessary sawing and excess pressure and this increases your chances of slipping and slicing yourself. And, a dull knife has its own 3/9/11
Slide 7: uniquely unpleasant pain, as if it bruises and slices at the same time. Rule number three, avoid cutting round objects. If you’re cutting a lemon, or an onion, or a potato, cut it in half first so that you’re dealing with a secure, 3/9/11
Slide 8: flat surface. Rolling over and running the knife across your knuckles can cause a surprising but necessary trip to the emergency room, if you have some weight behind the stroke. 3/9/11
Slide 9: Like so many things, practice makes perfect, but it helps to have professional examples close up. Me, I started at 15, working beside a Master Chef and I had the good fortune to observe his technique over and over-3/9/11
Slide 10: this is key. If you see the motion and you pay close attention to the position of the fingers in all sorts of scenarios--cutting cabbage, slicing raw meat, dicing onions, mincing garlic, finely slicing fresh basil or Italian pasley 3/9/11
Slide 11: you start to deeply understand the fundamentals. On my website, ThriftCultureNow.com, we have created a series of free online cooking classes, using over 85 videos paired with written guidance. Our 3/9/11
Slide 12: 3/9/11 focus is cooking techniques, frugal recipes and food cost, so we provide you with the knowledge you need to cook from scratch, using a huge variety of ingredients, without using a recipe book.
Slide 13: 3/9/11 We have a huge section devoted to knife skills called, First Thing’s First, Master the Blade, and it contains almost 20 videos showing a variety of situations and how to be totally efficient with your knife. This will help
Slide 14: 3/9/11 make you a great cook. Not everyone learns the same way, this is a fact. All I have done is replicate the way I learned to be a pro with a chef’s knife. I learned by watching a pro and copying what he did.
Slide 15: If you love food and want to learn to cook better, or if you have children on which you would like to offload some duties, have a look! There are dozens of delicious meal ideas, frugal recipes, cooking technique 3/9/11
Slide 16: videos, and the food cost method. Cooking from scratch is the number one way that families can save more money. Eating take-out or packaged food is very expensive and unhealthy. 3/9/11
Slide 17: 3/9/11 If you learn the skills required for cooking now, you will enjoy a lifetime of delicious meals. Teaching your children to cook before they’re out of the house is a great way of helping them
Slide 18: to be very thrifty in the future – you will save money! Happy Cooking! Travis Grier is a Chef and the founder of http://www.thriftculture now.com 3/9/11
