What you'll learn in this knife skills class:

Everything you ever needed to know about choosing, storing, sharpening, holding, and using the most important tool in the kitchen. We will have 8-inch chef's knives for you to practice on, but you are also welcome to bring your own knife.

And so you have something to cook with all your expertly chopped ingredients, we'll also make:
  • Vegetable Minestrone Soup
  • Vegetable Stir Fry
Included in the price is a knife sharpening stone of your own, which we will teach you how to use flawlessly before you leave.  

School Notes: Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden worktable that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table. We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.
We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student. For cancellations prior to the 48-hour mark, we are happy to offer credit for a future class.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are not able to offer credit for last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand these things do happen.

Fun, educational, hands-on. I definitely feel like I've improved my knife skills after this class! (The only reason I couldn't give it five stars is its price was a little high for me.)

This class will help you confidently make good cuts - specifically chopping, slicing, mincing, and the jullienne. You will learn about how to choose and take good care of your knives. The instructor was warm and candid, professional and inclusive, and made sure everyone was learning the skills. A great class in a comfortable, homey kitchen.

Really enjoyed this class. John was a great teacher. The meal he made for the students at the end was fantastic. Will definitely sign up for future classes.
