I came over this clip on Youtube of an Asian chef that peels and parts an apple in like 35 sec. That's impressive in it self, only he uses a big, big chefs knife for every operation!
The technique he uses for peeling is insane.
A lot of you have already seen it, no doubt. Here it is:
Does anybody know what this technique is called, where it stems from and how it is performed? I imagine he must be using his right thumb as some kind of guide for thickness.. or something.
I'm pretty decent at katsuramuki now and need new challenges. What a party trick this would be...!
All the best.
