How to Chiffonade Basil

Chiffonade is a great knife technique for cutting herbs (and other things!) into little ribbons.

I worked with Dave to show us how it’s done!

Step 1. Remove basil leaves from stems and collect them in a little pile

Step 2: Collect pile of basil and neatly stack them evenly

Step 3: Roll basil up nice and tight, like the worlds most fragrant sleeping bag.

Step 4: Hold the basil tightly with your pinky, ring finger, and thumb on the sides; and use your index and middle finger to keep the knife away from you. Cut basil roll into thin beautiful little ribbons.

Step 5: Add basil to your favorite snack and enjoy the sweet aromatic fruits herbs of your labor.
