I use onions in almost every dish, even if it’s just for a salad. They are my favorite veggie after all.
So it’s crucial that I know how to slice and dice one properly. The easy way of slicing the onion (cutting off both ends, slicing it in half then going at it) provides uneven slices and lots of crying (because of the sulfur, not because of your uneven slices.)
But one of my chef crushes, Gordon Ramsay, has a video that can explain how easy it is to dice up an onion and how it will keep you tear free (hint: it has to do with the root!)
Watch. Enjoy. Fall in love with Gordon and his fake crying at the end.
