Here's the right way to do it.
There’s nothing the internet likes more than telling you how wrong you’ve been doing something. Whether it’s the way you make baked potatoes, how you stir your tea or even how you use the poo emoji. Wrong. ALL WRONG.
The latest action to come under fire is the way you cut a loaf of bread, after chef Sarah Jampel told Food 52 most adults are definitely doing it wrong.
Apparently, if you’re cutting bread when it’s flat on a chopping board, not only does it squish the loaf, but it makes it harder to create even slices and keep the bread from crumbling.
Instead, we should be flipping the loaf on its side and cut downwards as usual, to avoid crushing your loaf, and to better preserve the shape. The chef explains,
“The best way to get consistent slices and preserve the shape of the loaf, which has a tendency to crumble, is to turn the bread on its side, score it using a ruler, and then slice away—clean motions, just a few back-and-forth saws, and as little downward pressure as possible.”
To be fair, that definitely does make sense- we dread to think how many pieces of bread we’ve ruined by squishing them or failing to make a clean, straight cut.
Now does anyone else fancy cheese on toast for lunch or what?
