Knife Skills

Mastering basic knife skills is the quickest and easiest way to appear like a whiz in the kitchen, even if you’re just starting out on your cooking journey. Whether you’ve been casually manoeuvring around the kitchen your whole life or are just now learning the basics, sharpening up on the essential knife skills will make you the best chef you can be.

Learning how to use a knife is one of the fundamental skills in cooking. A chef’s knives are their pride and joy and form the basis of any serious cooking. The focus of the class is precision and accuracy. 

We cover all of the key skills in this exciting technical class:

  • Positioning your knife, slicing, dicing, chopping, mincing, julienning & chiffonading
  • Traditional vegetable cuts such as emince, hache, macadoine & brunoise, 
  • Traditional butchery cuts of a chicken 

What to expect:

All our classes take a hands-on approach to cooking, and you’ll be learning recipes from scratch. Our friendly chef will teach you all the tricks of the trade, starting with a fun and informative demonstration. After that, it’s over to you! You’ll be able to taste your food throughout the cooking process and season your plate to your liking. Throughout the evening chef will invite you to sample their food.
