I am a lazy cook.
Lazy. Lazy. Lazy.
In culinary school, one of the things I struggled with was”board skills” — the part of class where we would be graded and timed on our knife skills. Imagine being given a tray of vegetables that you had to peel & cut into precise shapes within an amount of time shorter than it takes to boil water. Stressful to say the least…..
Fortunately, those days are behind me and I chop my produce with leisure and ease while drinking wine — precise cuts be damned! However, one cut still alludes me — the julienne or matchstick. It takes too long to do (remember I am lazy…) so I typically avoid it when at all possible. But all that may change thanks this multi-blade peeler from Joseph….
This peeler comes with a straight, serrated and julienne blade simply twist the dial to expose a different blade. Pretty nifty huh?
With the Fourth of July around the corner, this will be perfect for adding some extra pizzazz to your cole slaw with some matchstick carrots or some oomph to your fruit salad with melon ribbons. Or if you wanted to get extra fancy make your own pickled relish with sliced red onions, julienne cucumbers, red wine vinegar, sugar, salt and whole peppercorns – the perfect topping for hot dogs or sausages.
At $12 the Joseph multi-blade peeler is a pretty cool tool to have in a lazy chef’s arsenal.
