Question from Anonymous
Does this class teach you knife speed or just the basics of knife skills?
Answer from Joshua H. Verified Student
I think they’re related. If you don’t know the basics you can’t have good knife speed. But speed isn’t the focus, per se.
Answer from Kristle C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
The knife skills class covers basic knife skills and techniques. We have students ranging in skill and so if the student has some knife skills and would like to work on speed, they can do that as well. The chef explains and demonstrates the technique and then walks around helping guests. There is a lecture at the beginning of class and guests can ask questions and get tips on speed, knife sharpening etc.

Wanted more of the second half of the class, which was practicing. There was a bit too much time spent on honing and sharpening. Engaging instructor.

The Chopping Block did not disappoint. The expert chefs (Pete and Maggie) were informative, engaging and had fun with the class. All while we learned valuable information that can be applied to our time in the kitchen. My daughter and I enjoyed our Knife Skills class and we are looking forward to scheduling another, different class to continue the fun and learning! Thank you.
