Basic Knife Skills (Hands-On)   

The knife is the most basic of kitchen tools and certainly the most important. In this informative and interactive class, you will not only learn basic knife skills – what type of knife you need, how to hold your knife, how to protect and sharpen your knife – but also how to master various cutting techniques (cut, chop, slice, dice, mince, chiffonade) to make cooking easy, fast, and enjoyable. Each student will have the opportunity to test out what they learn and will also enjoy a meal of vegetable soup, salad, and garlic bread. This course is ideal for amateur cooks, regardless of how long you've been pursuing your hobby. At the very least, the class will teach you how to work more efficiently. This is a HANDS-ON style class. Students should bring their chef’s knife (also known as a French or cook’s knife), a paring knife, and their favorite cutting board. If you do not have your own, we will supply a knife and cutting board.
