Rondelle and Diagonal Cut

Know Your Techniques: Rondelle and Diagonal

Cutting cylindrical vegetables may seem pretty straightforward, but there are actually a couple of ways to go about it. Much like the mince or the brunoise, cutting a vegetable properly ensures great texture and flavor in your dishes.

The first cut is known as a rondelle, which is simply circular coins. Hold the knife perpendicular to the vegetable and slice evenly.

For a more elegant cut, angle the knife slightly and cut diagonal pieces from the cylindrical vegetable.
