What you'll learn in this knife skills class:

Everything you ever need to know about choosing, storing, sharpening, holding, and using the most important tool in the kitchen. We will have 8-inch chef's knives for you to practice on, but you are also welcome to bring your own knife.

And so you have something to cook with all your expertly chopped ingredients, we'll also make:

  • Vegetable Minestrone Soup
  • Vegetable Stir Fry
Note: 

Included in the price is a knife sharpening stone of your own, which we will teach you how to use flawlessly before you leave.

Make sure to ring the outside buzzer, even if the front door is open, so we know you are arriving!

Important:
Please reach out to CourseHorse for any dietary restrictions.

School Notes:
You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden worktable that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Refund Policy
We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student. For cancellations prior to the 48-hour mark, we are happy to offer credit for a future class.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are not able to offer credit/refund for last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand these things do happen.

Great teacher and space. Well organized and I learned and practiced new, practical skills. I couldn't eat the dinner because of my own food sensitivities but I certainly learned the skills I was hoping to learn. Highly recommend this class and teacher.
