Microplanes: Flip It Over for Less of a Mess

The Chopping Block cooking class called Rendezvous Under the Stars taught us a couple new skills -- and one that is so obvious, but so useful - I can't believe I haven't heard of it before.

I often make a bit of a mess when I'm using a microplane - the citrus zest often makes it everywhere except into the bowl I want it in. I put together this quick little video outlining this simple technique.  This is my first video, so go easy on me - I am an amateur.
