Basic Knife Skills
On October 21st, join Chef Will Griffin, formerly at Lincoln Ristorante and co-founder of I8NY, for a Basic Knife Skills Class. In this introductory class we will share the tips and skills that professional cooks use in their kitchens.  Becoming more comfortable using your knives will make you a faster and more efficient cook, enhance the appearance and taste of your food, and will make cooking at home more enjoyable!

In this 2 hours 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:
- Proper knife handling
- Peeling and dicing onions, shallots, and garlic
- Working with oblongs and cylinders: potatoes, carrots, etc.
- How to approach herbs

Time allowing, we will cover topics such as knife maintenance, safety, honing, and sharpening, as well as discuss the different types of knives and their uses. Students are welcome to bring their own knives for discussion.

All ingredients and materials (knives and butcher blocks) will be provided.  
Sponsored by Brooklyn Butcher Blocks.

This class is capped at 15 people.  Students have the option to purchase a ticket which includes a butcher block courtesy of Brooklyn Butcher Blocks.

General $40 - Admission to class
