When I was growing up, I noticed a great family rift... that started in the kitchen!

When peeling, for example, apples using a knife, my paternal grandmother (my father's mother) always peeled TOWARDS herself...

Whereas my mother, always peeled AWAY from herself...

This caused a lot of tension between my mother and her mother-in-law!

(I think my Dad stayed diplomatically out of it...)

My grandmother insisted peeling TOWARDS yourself is the right way!

But my Mom was equally insistent that peeling AWAY from yourself is the right way!

Things like this could be the start of World War III...

Best wishes!


Do me a favor Dien,

PLEASE for god's sake, don't show people how to chop up vegetables.

If I did a cooking show, first thing I would say is GO AWAY if you don't know how to cut up a carrot, or celery or a potato or onion.

GO AWAY. When you take all the chopping on YouTube, a 5 minute recipe can be covered in about 2 mins.

My belief, opinion and bias is...if you don't know how to cut a carrot, you've got no business trying to do anything in the kitchen, get out now.

I did start a cookbook eons ago, ALEXANDER'S GREAT SOUPS, STEWS AND SAUCES...and if I were to channel that on youtube, there would be NO chopping of anything...come back after you have cut your finger off.
