Knife skills class


Join us November 7, 2022, 5pm PT for a virtual knife skills class, the first online, live and interactive cooking class in our Series Learn to cook without recipes classes.

Hone your skills, and learn to chop, slice, cut and dice like a chef.

Handling your knife properly is a lifelong and essential skill for all cooks, from beginner to experienced home cook. Of all the cooking classes, knife skills class is always the one students rave about the most.

What can you expect?

We will discuss what knives to use for what, talk about maintenance, but most of the time you will be using your chef’s knife. Don’t go out to buy a knife in advance (in case you think you need one), but first learn what a good knife is and which one will be best for you!

Class is open for all dietary preferences, and 2 recipes will be provided to use up the ingredients we cut up. Dishes are vegetarian, but easily can be made vegan, or become part of a omnivore’s meal.

What you’ll learn

At all the classes within the Taste & Technique virtual cooking course we will focus on only 1 technique, 1 dish, 1 ingredient or 1 theme.

So in this knife skills class, that means we will be talking, but mostly using, knives. My aim is to make you feel comfortable using your chef’s knife and know what you can do with it.

You’ll learn:
* what knives there are and what are they for
* knife sharpness and maintenance
* using your chef’s knife

What you’ll need

* your chef’s knife (8 in | 20 cm blade works best for most people)
* other knives you have questions about
* 1-2 cutting boards
* ingredients – A full grocery & tools list will be provided after sign up.

About your chef

In her cooking classes, chef Edie loves to explain what happens in your pots and pans. We will discuss the cooking technique(s) we’re using, and how you can switch up recipes with ingredients you have in your pantry. All just to empower you to get a bit looser with recipes so you can come a more confident and creative cook.

Feel free to get in touch with any questions you have. And yes, you can email a picture of your knives to learn which ones to use in class!
