What you'll learn in this knife skills class:

Knowing how to use knives skillfully is the foundation of all cooking, and doesn't have to be scary or frustrating. Many home and even professional cooks don't always wield a knife correctly, however, which increases food preparation time and makes the process harder and less safe than it should be. Simply put, good knives are the foundation of a well equipped kitchen. 

This class remedies all these basic issues: You will learn how to slice, dice, chop, and much more in the safest and most efficient manner. This class will even guide you through the practice of keeping your knives sharp and handling them correctly.

We serve wine in our classes. It is against our policy for guests to bring in any type of alcoholic beverages.
School Notes: Please note that a valid ID is required for entry into ICE's building. Upon arrival to 225 Liberty Street, proceed to the security desk on the 2nd floor located next to Hudson Eats to check in.

Two weeks withdrawal notice is required for a refund; but please note a transaction fee will be deducted from the refund for each and every class seat registration that is cancelled by the registrant/student based on the following scale: classes up to $125 will incur a $20 fee, classes in the $126-$350 range will have a $30 fee, classes valued over $351 will incur a $50 fee. When a class is dropped 3-13 days prior to the start date, only school class credit will be issued, and the corresponding transaction fee will be deducted. Rescheduling a class entails a cancellation and, therefore, a transaction fee will still be charged to customers. There are no refunds or school credit issued when fewer than 48 hours notice from the class start date is given. In case of class cancellation, all students will be notified and a full refund will be given.

So amazing!! You could tell that the instructor is passionate about what he does and is extremely knowledgeable. This class also drew a fun crowd of people ranging from beginner home cooks to couples looking to host their first party together. I thought it was so much fun!! You won’t regret it.

It was a great class and I feel like I learned a lot. I feel like I can take these skills and use them to shorten the time I spend in the kitchen just prepping. The start of the class was a little long winded about ICE in general, information that is seemed geared towards taking other classes, but felt like a waste of time. The reason I am not giving it 5 stars is due to the lack of attention received during the class. The instructor did a decent job working around the room, but it felt like there was more feedback we could have received, especially when working with knifes. The assistant was not that great, she barely attempted to assist any of the students, but the instructor did say she was new, so maybe she just needs more guidance. Overall a great class that I would recommend to others, but there is some room for improvement.
