Techniques used in this recipe:
sliceIf you are slicing a round object, cut a slice from the bottom to make it lie firmly. Use the pointed end of a chef's knife to puncture the skin and make the first cut. Hold the object being sliced with your fingers bent and cut vertical slices to the desired thickness. With each slice, move your fingers back to the width of the next slice. Dont cut yourself!
