Knife Skills
Reviewed by Anonymous on 5/8/2019
I felt that there needed to be more on knife skills and less on building a recipe. I expected to have more (and larger) vegetables to practice on. While the recipe part was nice, we spent over 45 minutes making poached eggs and hollandaise which took away from the knife skills portion of the class. The instructor was good, great personality and very friendly and knowledgeable. More teaching, less schtick would be a good comment.

Decent beginners coarse. Hands on activities. Worked with chef’s knife only. Wished they had explained what other knives are used for. Would recommend.

The teacher's methods were good-- free form enough to allow independent students to work on their own, but with enough TAs that if anyone needed one on one help it was available. The reason this class received only a 3 from me is a combination of issues-- 1) the advertisement for the class sounded like it was a little higher level than it turned out to be. It seems as if I should have signed up for an intermediate class. 2) The former issue may have happened because we had a substitute. If that was the case, we should have been alerted in advance that the class would not be the same as what we'd paid for and been given the option to cancel (the teacher we did enjoy but even she admitted she didn't do the same things as the other teacher). 3) There was little emphasis in the class on sterility when it came to the food we were preparing- we were not informed what to do with food that had come into contact with the floor, to re-wash our hands if we touched anything other than food or kitchen tools, or to wear hair nets/our hair back. I would have felt more comfortable if we'd gone over those rules, just in case.

I learned a lot in this class: How to Slice better, Safer and easier, how to make poached eggs, Sauce Hollandaise. I also liked the Theory, die cook and the People participating. It was a very nice Atmosphere. Thank you. B.
