Do you know how to properly cut an onion??

In this video, my Tiny Oranges partner, Susanne (aka Your Sus Chef), shows us how she was taught in culinary school.

I have never seen this before! The technique is brilliant! Even my mother-in-law who is a fab cook learned something. I hope you do too!

Think you know how? Watch to find out!

And would LOVE your feedback on these vlogs! Please comment! Do you want to see more?

    I thought this was great! Although I already know how to cut an onion, I don’t know how to stop crying when I cut them! Any advice? I cry more than Ricky Schroder in the movie The Champ.

      @Johnny- have you tried putting piece of bread in your mouth? It acts to block the fumes a bit & absorbs them so they don’t make it up to your eyes. (but you’ll look super silly 😉
