Chef Paul was an excellent teacher! He provided clear and easy to follow instruction on knife skills. His tips and guidance around other kicking tips/tricks (roasting, preparing tomatoes etc.) were all fantastic and I have so much that I will be taking from the session. Highly recommend!

What a great class! Chef Paul is an excellent teacher. I had been shown how to use a knife before, but I didn't "get it." The way Chef Paul demonstrated the techniques was a revelation (as in, Oh, so that's what it's supposed to look like!!). He's very patient and provides lots of tips for making very delicious, and very simple meals!

I wrote you the morning after saying I want a refund or replacement course. It was unacceptable. I have numerous details for you that you should know about. They begin with a fly swatter on our cooking counter which the chef used again mid class. The chef and kitchen were dirty, he was misleading and cheap, avoiding using basic likely costly ingredients claiming they were not needed. After 2 full hours of a « knife skills « class with subpar and incomplete explaining of true techniques, we had chopped 5 single vegetables and half a peeled apple. It was a joke. His hands were frequently dirty as he did not use a kitchen towel but instead kept wiping his hands in his already dirty chefs coat; his oven mitts filthy burnt and disgusting. My station was just next to the garbage which smelled badly and i had to ask him to please place the garbage further from me. Clearly you do not have quality control of your teachers or facilities because he should NOT be teaching a knife skills class or even a cooking class. I have taken cooking classes before with true chefs and he should not be teaching as he is a terrible communicator, never had us introduce ourselves to create a harmony among the students, no one asked questions as they were inexperienced and did not know that his teachings were incorrect. Please refund my money or offer a replacement class right away.

This class was great!

School: Miette


Miette means, "little crumb" in French. This name was chosen while giving cooking classes at the restaurant Tartine in the West Village. Since Tartine means "slice of bread" we thought it an appropriate name for the school!
