Traditional Italian Mezzaluna Chopper
A traditional tool, the “Mezzaluna,” meaning, “half-moon” in Italian after the curved shape of its blade, is a culinary favorite when it comes to quick, efficient chopping. Strong beechwood handles make it easy to grip and use while keeping hands away from blades. It’s great for chopping garlic and herbs, chocolate, nuts, pizza, and more This is one classic Italian tool that can look a bit medieval and isn’t found in every household.
HOW TO USE: You just rock it back and forth to quickly mince whatever food you’re working with. Rock blade side-to-side to chop tender items; use an up-and-down motion to chop larger, more dense items; continue to mince until desired texture is achieved.
