Chiffonade

Definition: Chiffonade

Chiffonade
A kitchen cutting technique used to shred the leaves of herbs and vegetables into long, skinny ribbons. It is accomplished by stacking leaves, rolling them tightly, then slicing the rolled leaves thinly and evenly with a sharp knife, producing long strips. A chiffonade may then be used in a light sauté or as a garnish.

Aren't there certain things you shouldn't cut, like basil? I always see restaurant menus with "chiffonade of basil" and doesn't basil trun black at th edges when cut?
