"Knife skills are among the most important skills a foodservice professional needs to develop. Knives are used to perform a variety of tasks, from dicing vegetables to cutting up poultry. Each type of knife is used to perform specific tasks, and it is important to know which knife to use for each task. Handling knives safely and using the proper cutting technique are extremely important. Uniform knife cuts aid even cooking as well as add visual interest to the plate. Producing basic knife cuts with precision and speed requires a lot of practice."
