Fun with a cleaver

Chinese cleavers are not like your average meat cleaver. The latter a heavy, thick, with a big chisel edge designed to whack through meant and smash through bones. The Chinese cleaver, is a actually a precision tool for cutting up vegatables. Think of it as a variation on the chef knife.

The height of the blade gives you an advantage when knuckle-pinching your food — you’re more unlikely to slice your fingers off. And yeah, you can use these things for slicing. Chopping. Julienning. Whatever you want!

I don’t think he’s on the air anymore, but I remember watching Yan Can Cook a million years ago. Never did notice that all he used was a cleaver for his demos. Now I’m watching, and frankly, I’m amazed.

That’s some skill right there, folks. I don’t care who you are. Yan Can Cook.
