The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
I have never in my life used a cleaver before today.

I had some chicken leg quarters I wanted to chop up and I also have a never used cleaver. My Buela would use a cleaver if she wanted to chop up a chicken.

Lessons learned: My aim sucks. I'm a coward. Good thing I watched 'buela cuz I dunno if I would have immediately thought of the rocking motion when cowardice leads to not chopping all the way through. Seriously, my aim sucks.

I've always envied the rapid chopping I see chefs perform on vegetables and things like scallions and whatnot. I'd love to be able to do that, but I'm afraid I'd cut my fingertips off.

There's a technique to everything, cleaver-wielding among them. I have a cleaver, but don't use it much.
