The Julienne

The Julienne Cut, or Julienning, is a traditional French cutting technique used to get your vegetables into a lovely matchstick shape around 2mm wide. This technique is a great way to present vegetables as it focuses on having them thin and similar in size. Cooking and combing into sauces or stock is also faster due to their thickness.

This knife technique is commonly used on root vegetables, radishes or daikon. On potatoes when you want to achieve thin crispy french fries. Or on carrots, cucumber or capsicum with arranging salads.

Gabriel, Handyman, Ezekiel, The One or Tom Petty is excellent with this cutting technique.
