Chopping block

April 20, 2005

In Delhi, right outside our house by the Jantar Mantar monument is a nameless restaurant that serves rickshaw drivers, bus chauffeurs and around 400 various people each day - including ourselves. At the crack of dawn, which in Delhi means a civilised 9 o’clock, the kitchen staff sets to work on the mise en place. The man in the image above has developed a way to do yoga and chop onions at the same time. I particularly love the self designed chopping block he’s using. Vegetables spill over on either side, a perfect object and technique to cut one’s way through mountains of onions.
