Thankful Thursday: 8 Cuts Every Cook Should Know – International Recipe’s

This Thankful Thursday article comes to us from Chef Gustavo Pasquini, author of the blog International Recipes. I am posting this article with the uncertainty as to the activity of this blog, since the most recent article I can find is from October, 2016, with a testimonial posted in January, 2017. With that said, I felt compelled to share it with you. This site has many phenomenal, chef quality recipes, and a few free e-books, examples of his international recipes book series.

Chef Pasquini studied at Senac, Juiz de Fora in Brazil. Chef Pasquini worked in a local restaurant, traveled to Ireland, worked in a restaurant there. In 2014, he traveled to Thailand, learned asian techniques, and took a courses at Le Cordon Bleu in Bangkock. After completing the advanced cooking level, he moved to Italy, where he learned Mediterranean Techniques, before returning to Brazil, where he currently lives.

Below is a youtube video made by Chef Pasquini, which show instructions on basic cutting techniques everyone should know.
