Knife Skills Class

As a “personal trainer for your kitchen,” it is my goal to build your culinary muscles and show you tools and techniques for success.

The most coveted of techniques: KNIFE SKILLS.

I will quickly cover the basics: the design of the chef knife, how to hold a chef knife, and the uses of a chef knife. And then, we will start slicing and dicing.

I’m excited to show you my “no-seed mess” technique to cut a bell pepper!

You will need:

• Chef knife
• Cutting board
• Separate bowl for each veggie or a ziplock bag
• 1 head broccoli
• 2 carrots
• 2 celery ribs
• 2 zucchini
• 2 onions
• 2 bell peppers
• 2 sweet potatoes (or white potatoes)

Be sure to have all things washed and set up before class starts.

NOTE: you will need to use/cook these items within a couple of days.

In this class, we will not cook. We will give all our attention to slicing and dicing.

Full disclosure: I have taught MANY knife skills classes — in various locations — but this will be my first online class. We all will have our cameras pointing to the cutting board. You will watch me do a specific cutting technique and then I will watch you do it.
