Words from the kitchen

Snip:cut in small dice.

Monder: peel a vegetable or a fruit (peach, tomato...) after having immersed it for a few seconds in boiling water, cool it immediately in very cold water so as to stop cooking. The skin then withdraws very easily.

Peel off quickly: Remove the skin of a citrus fruit (lemon, orange, grapefruit) to remove both the bark and the white skin that covers the flesh. No skin should remain on the pulp.
