    Well done. Chef Tony led the class, supported by Chef Lisa and Chef David. It was a helpful, insightful class, even for a seasoned home cook. Lots of focus on technique with personal input from the roaming chefs.

    I learned a great deal in this knife skills class. Our instructor, David, obviously is a very talented chef. He did a great job sharing his encyclopedic knowledge about kitchen knives and demonstrating to the class how to handle the knife and use it appropriately and safely.

    I enjoyed this class! I thought the chefs were very informative and helpful. I received a good education about knives in addition to being able to actually take home all of my chopped veggies, which i have since used here at home. My suggestion for future classes would be to have stools for sitting for the education portion of the class them removing them when time to do the cutting where we really needed to be on our feet. Standing for 2 hours didn't feel good and a couple of people actually complained to me. Pictures were discouraged but I really would have liked to have some of me during this class and if there was some way you could allow us to take pics during some part of the class, maybe a break where we could use our cellphones but being aware of your caution of NOT using stabbing motions or any motion considered "knife negative", I know would have added to my enjoyment. I give this class a B+

    It was a very useful, practical, fun, and informational class. I loved learning a broad overview of different knives commonly found in a home kitchen. Moreover, the practice of skillfully and safely cutting/dicing/slicing and holding the vegetables, was immensely helpful. Such a great class and a life skill everyone should learn!

    I thought the class itself was fine but I feel that it was too expensive for what it was.

    The Knife Skills class was great! The instructor was helpful and personable; his instruction was clear, precise, and based on professional expertise. Good pace. Hands-on. Lots of practice during the class. My husband and I left the class with improved knife skills, baggies full of chopped veggies to be used in a provided recipe, and all 20 of our fingers!

    Fun and informative. Only thing I would have liked to have seen is maybe a second onion. It was a challenging thing to do. One to try and struggle with. One to try again. Other than that I had no issues at all

    Entertaining instructor who really knows his stuff. Quite a bit of time was spent on info regarding things like knife brands, which didn't really draw me in; I would have loved more time learning different techniques instead.
