    Seriously though, it's a semi informational video dumbed down for the masses, but his knife skills need some work. Pepper skins up? I don't know man.

    HEh, I thought the same thing.

    It was a good video for the 99% of the people that are likely to watch it. Plus...he worked a Nakiri into it, that's gotta be worth a couple of points.

    I always laugh out loud at AB. The german Klaus character is great. Love the "cuts through the eastern bloc".

    Thanks Mike. I'm a fan of "Good Eats" - the last FN show to try and convey information. But I don't think I'' be doing peppers that way...

    I usually cut peppers skin side up. Never really posed any problem for me.

    Love "Good Eats". Funny, interesting, and well presented. Not much info there for experts, but I guess it's not targeted at experts.
    I cut peppers with the skins up. Except when my knife is dull.

    I used to like AB and GE. Learned a ton from him. Now he's turned into a pompous ass. He was nicer and funnier when he was chubby.

    I cut pepper skin side up because it's easier to get them to sit flat on the board. With skin side down it may be easier to cut through the skin, but then they tend to curl up. You need to sharpen your knives, Rick!

    I'm not knocking anyone's knife skills for cutting peppers skin side up. I just find it different so it's weird to me. It's Alton's knife skills which I find to be lacking. Though again, at least he is somewhat educating the unwashed masses.

    About the time GE came out, I was amongst those unwashed masses.
