How too's

Sometimes even I get confused with food terms. Chop, dice, mince, saute, bake, broil etc. I thought I would post some photos and definitions. Obviously chop is my favorite because IT IS IRREGULAR. I don't love having to cut stuff into uniform pieces although some recipes do need to be cubed or diced so they can cook at the same speed. Every time I cut stuff in odd sizes or not uniform my husband tells me that "insert important chef name here" would have my head. I always reply, "baby it's rustic." I hope the terms below are helpful to you. I will do my best to use appropriate terms and tell you when something NEEDS to be cut uniformly.
