Carrots brunoise

Brunoise (French: [bʁynwaz]) is a culinary knife cut in which the food item is first julienned and then turned a quarter turn and diced, producing cubes of about 3 millimetres (18 in) or less on each side. In France, a "brunoise" cut is a smaller 1 to 2mm. Some typical vegetables for a brunoise are carrots, celery, leeks, and turnips. The diced vegetables are blanched briefly in salty boiling water and then submerged in salted ice water for a few seconds to set the color. The brunoise is used as a garnish in many dishes; it is often used to garnish consommé. A brunoise should be consistent in size and shape, as this helps to create a pleasing and professional presentation.[1]
