Super Chef Rajju of the day who hails all the way from India, briefing us on cooking do's and don'ts. "This is a knife. Please do not be putting your fingers between board and blade."
Azlinah, bless her soul, stood beside me throughout the process, making sure my fingers stayed intact.
Hooray, Mel can dice up tomatoes! The world is alright again!
