Description

If you want to learn how to chop like a pro, our Knife Skills class is perfect for you. Better knife skills allow you to be more confident in cooking more complex dishes.

We will start by showing you how to sharpen your knives so you can stay sharp at all time! We will guide you through the steps necessary to sharpen your knife the traditional Japanese way on Japanese whetstones to create a razor sharp edge. Whether you're a self-declared "knife geek" or just have a dull chef's knife at home that has been driving you crazy, you will benefit the tips for a lifetime and will transform the way you use this indispensable tool. Please feel free to bring your own knives.

We will then guide you through a variety of different knife cuts. This class is not centred on preparing a meal but rather providing you with the right technique to help you be a more confident cook and apply your new skill to a whole variety of recipes. Using vegetables as your guide, you will learn the proper, and safest, ways to use, store, and hone your knives.

Our chef will prepare some delicious salads and refreshments for you to enjoy whilst you work.
