How To Cut Carrots Like a Pro: 4 Basic Cuts
Julienne (Matchstick) Cuts: Cut a thin slice from one side of the carrot and set the carrot on this side — this “bottom” will hold the carrot steady while you slice.

Stack all the slices on top of each other, then cut through the layers to create matchsticks.
