One of the most useful tools in my kitchen armoury in the UK is a utensil to hold an onion while you slice it. When I was undergoing radiotherapy a few years ago I was part of a great group of people including Junior and his wife Marlene. During a conversation one day the subject of onion chopping came up and I mentioned this wonderfully simple but effective gadget and also said that I'd been unable to find another one for my life in New Zealand. So Marlene went on the hunt and found me one. So every couple of days when I use it I think of that kindness and of Marlene and Junior.
