Cutting Edge

Want to learn a great way to chop an onion?

In the April issue of Hudson Valley Connoisseur, we explore really good kitchen knives-- the kinds of knives that we buy as a treat to ourselves (when we reach that point in life where we can do such things.) Having the right knife, like any tool, makes working in the kitchen more enjoyable and also more productive. For the photos that illustrated our article, we visited two local shops that specialize in very good knives: The Kitchen Drawer, 4068 Albany Post Road, Hyde Park, 845-229-2300 and Warren Kitchen & Cutlery, 6934 Route 9, Rhinebeck, 845-876-6208

Oh, and that super onion-chopping method? Article author Theresa J. Marquez, a CIA-trained chef, demonstrates it in a short video on the HVC magazine Web site. Enjoy!
