My mother taught me the “straight up and down” motion of cutting, chopping, slicing with the two carving knives we have, and the “hacking” motion with a Chinese-style cleaver. You read that right: I have a total of three kitchen knives in my household. After the course, I realized how much faster things would be if I owned a chef’s knife!
