How to cut carrot Macédoine

The  Staff Canteen

For this demonstration, I'm going to show you how to cut a macedoine of carrot and this is a vegetable dice that's around about 8MM Square. So we've got some blocked off carrots here so the carrots have been peeled, washed and then cut into lengths and squared off.

So from our square we're going to start cutting batons round about 8 mills square, so slicing up and down just remembering to keep your fingers tucked back so that the knives running up and down on this flat edge, from there we take our slabs of carrot and cut them down again round about 8MM square, we'll just do one more so slicing down, like so and then into batons so you could use these as the baton carrot and from there just a few at a time, square them up by tapping them with the knife and just into cubes, and that's our macedoine of carrot.
