You might not believe this, but I love chopping onions. I like the precision of it. I like the tactile nature and the very physicality of it. I learned the proper technique from Susan Watterson, who’s now at CulinAerie. What I don’t love is the painful sulfur burn of chopping onions. I seem particularly sensitive to it. If this technique works, I will forever bow before Chow.com.
