  • I do not have sound on my computer, but watching the video: I learned how to chiffonade, to store the basil in a glass of water, and knew to use the base of the knife but seeing it reminded me. I also noticed that the basil was placed pretty glossy side down before rolling. Thank you! :} - 9/23/13
