I learned a lot. Thought Emma was a great. She was professional, supportive and made the class fun while focusing on knife skills and safety.

A lovely instructor but the class itinerary was a little unexpected. I was hoping for a lesson to hone my knife skills and learn how to properly use a knife and while I definitely learned a bunch of useful things, I don’t think I’m any better at the skill of cutting, sadly. Still a fun evening and great experience, I just didn’t get what I expected!

The class was fun and interesting. The size could be smaller at the venue. More cutting of items would be addition. But over all a good class. The food was tasty too

I was glad to have an introduction into several skills, particularly sharpening knives. I found that I already knew several of the techniques, but it's very good to review. In future I think it would be good to learn how to debone a chicken or the like, but that probably does not fit the descriptor of Cooking Basics. The instructor was kind, patient, and relaxed.
