Brunoise is a small dice cube. The cutting technique uses julienned vegetables which are then diced again, producing cubes of about 3mm or less on each side. The brunoise is mainly used as a garnish to create a professional finish to dishes.

One of the reasons that professional dishes look so fantastic is the attention paid to learning basic knife techniques. Mastering the cutting technique of brunoise vegetables will make any dish stand out in a crowd!

Where does the technique come from?
