|Reviewers Comments: ||This video is a great tool to help inexperienced cooks feel more comfortable in the kitchen. Difficult terminology, such as the difference between chop, dice, julienne, and mice are explained and the techniques are demonstrated. Participants will learn how to chop a pepper and an onion. Then ordinary equipment is used to turn the chopped vegetables into a simple vegetable stir fry.
While this video will not teach participants to cook everything, it is a good introduction to some basic cooking skills. It would work well in a beginning cooking class for teenagers and adults.
