Knife Skills: Theory and Technique
The knife is your most important tool in the kitchen.  Getting comfortable using your knives will make you faster and more efficient in the kitchen, your food look and taste better, and will make cooking at home more fun!  These are the tips and tricks that professional cooks learn in restaurant kitchen basements around the world.  Here is your chance to obtain these skills in a relaxed environment.

In this hands-on class we will explore the knife techniques that form the basis of modern cooking.  These are the cuts that inevitably come up in the preparation of a meal:
peeling and dicing onions, shallots, and garlic
working with oblongs and cylinders: potatoes, carrots, etc.
dealing with unusual fruits and vegetables
how to approach herbs
In addition, we will cover topics such as knife maintenance, safety, honing, and sharpening.  We will also discuss the different types of knives and their uses.  Students are welcome to bring their own knives for discussion.

All ingredients and materials will be provided.
