Cooking can be a creative and scientific project, but it’s about the process just as much as the delicious result! Use our recipes as a road map -- a suggested route­­­ to follow -- but always be willing to take a detour and substitute ingredients or modify steps. When starting a cooking project with your Rad kid, please approach it with flexibility, care, and patience.

  • Use "Spider Fingers". Tuck your fingers around the food you are holding. This protects your fingertips from the sharp blade and allows your knuckles to be the guide while cutting.
  • Create a flat surface. Don't let round food roll around the cutting board! Start cutting by creating a flat surface. This provides stability for safer slicing.
  • Cut with a rocking motion. Keep the tip of your knife on the cutting board, rocking the bottom up and down to cut the food. This gives you better control with the knife and protects your fingers. 
  • Knives don't walk. When not using your knife, set it above your cutting board with the blade facing away. Do not walk with your knife in your hand.
