Ayla and Brianna were very effective teachers, and just generally good hosts and good sports. I'll be recommending this class to friends, and stopping back to get my knives sharpened.

class was nice and intimate and there was a lot of focus on the knife skills - ample time to practice on several vegetables and fruits. Great tips for knife care and how to handle your knife. Enjoyable meal at the end. For knife skills i recommended adding in a tomato in the future, it's a common vegetable and a little harder to cut well since it's so wet inside. :-P :-)
