For this demonstration, I'm going to show you how to cut a jardinière of carrots. We've got our blocked off carrots that we've peeled, we've divided them up into roundabout 40 ml lengths, squared them off, washed them and then were going to cut them first into a julienne. So slices round about 3 mm wide and I'm just running the knife up and down my knuckle, keeping my fingertips tucked away.

So slices round about 3 mm wide and I'm just running the knife up and down my knuckle, keeping my fingertips tucked away. We're then going to slice again about 3 mm thick into a julienne, do a couple more pieces, just crabbing your fingers back, keeping your fingertips out the way.

A little bit of squaring off to do on the edge of that one, and then our little batons were going to cut just into halves, just to give you a small baton which should be round about 20 ml by 3 ml by 3 ml. So just squared off, so that's from your blocked off carrot, into your julienne and then cut in half to give you a jardinière cut.
