  1. 1. Thrifty Cooking for Frugal living<br />
  2. 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 and fast and faster…ouch…<br />
  3. 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 rules. <br />
  4. 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<br />
  5. 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! <br />
  6. 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<br />
  7. 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, <br />

  9. 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--<br />
  10. 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<br />
  11. 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<br />
  12. 12. 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. <br />

  14. 14. 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. <br />
  15. 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<br />
  16. 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. <br />
  17. 17. 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 <br />
