Subject: Cooking with a mandolin
From: The Sandman
Date: 10 Sep 19 - 04:48 PM

I came across this recipe which suggested using a mandolin.
Sole fillet with crispy apple scales:

    Wash and slice the apples very thinly with a mandolin. Quickly put lemon juice on the thin apple slices.
has anyone tried using a banjo, or a hammered dulcimer for cooking purposes

You're onto something, darned if I know what though.

Do what I just did --

GOOGLE it -- you get a whole bunch of results.
Everything from
potato chips
to
fennel bulbs for a cucumber-and-fennel salad
to
red onions ...

Mandolin is a machine of some sort
for slicing fruits and vegetables.
And yes, it's the first time I ever heard of it.

It was a quiz question at a hotel where we were staying last week. What kitchen utensil beginning with the letter M is also the name of a musical instrument? I guessed mandolin.

The musical instrument is the mandolin. The cooking device used for slicing is the mandoline.

Last Friday I got two albums from the old Greenwich Village label, Phil Beer's "Mandoline" and Dick Miles' "Playing for Time", and put them onto Mainly Norfolk. The unusual spelling of "Mandoline" in the album title made me look up the difference between mandolin and mandoline on Wikipedia.

There's a famous clip of the British chef Rick Stein using a mandoline, where he says something to the effect that you have to be careful of your fingertips.
This is immediately followed by some bleeped-out swearing and the scene cuts to Rick with a plaster on his finger cutting veg with a knife.
He says "the sound you can hear in the background is a Japanese mandoline being thrown into a skip" (dumpster for our American readers).

You could try multitasking by playing a mandolin in one hand while slicing veges with the mandoline in the other hand.

You'd not have much of the mandoline hand left by the end of the exercise, Helen.

From Wikipedia:

Its name is derived from the wrist-motion of a skilled user of a mandoline, which resembles that of a player of the musical instrument mandolin.

I'm visualizing two restaurant prep cooks who've just returned from a tobacco-free smoke break. One begins to energetically chop carrots using this thing which, as yet, has no name. The other looks at him and says, "Dude! It looks like you're playing a mandolin! Can you play "Whiskey Before Breakfast" on that thing?"

Using a mandolin, you get three thick slices and four thin ones, haute cuisine at its finest.

"Cooking with a mandolin"
Not sure abour using as beautiful instrument as a mandolin for such things (though I do believe it to be often unsuitable for Irish music), but what an interesting idea
Wonder if anybody can come up with a better use for bodhrans other than to **** up good sessions !!
Just a thought

I thought the mandoline was the mandolin player’s answer to shred guitar playing.

as cooking, as opposed to preparing usually entails applying heat, wouldn't a Gretsch G9221 be more suitable?

I watched a video of a chef using one. I'm not convinced. I hear too many references to cut fingers, and he doesn't mention the waste that's involved because there's a good length of vegetable that's too short to cut.

actually, old boy, we bodhran players prefer to tune-up using a Swish Army knife, the one with the alien key attachment. Mine is red. And anyway we tune because we care..............
