Event Overview

Dice, slice, chop, chiffonade, and julienne! Recognize these knife cutting terms? I believe that competence as well as confidence in the kitchen begins with learning the proper techniques of knife handling. Meal preparation will be faster, easier, and more enjoyable.

This knife skills class will cover knife selection, proper knife handling, and learning knife common cuts.

This class is for experienced chefs as well as beginning cooks. We will develop a solid foundation of knife techniques in this hands-on class. Practice your new skills, prepare some delicious dishes with your perfectly chopped ingredients and go home with the “chef’s touch”.

We will use your new slicing and dicing techniques to prepare Southwestern Chopped Salad and Strawberry Galette(gluten Free option available).  

What to Bring

Bring your favorite chefs knife and paring knife.

What's Provided

All ingredients will be provided.

    I learned so much! The knife techniques will take practice since o have to unlearn my current cutting practices. We not only learned cutting but learned so much about cooking in general. What a great experience!

    Great info. I learned more than just knife cuts: cutlery care, cooking instructions, recipe adaptation.

    This was a wonderful class, particularly for someone who has very limited knowledge of different cutting techniques and use of knives. I learned so much useful information! DeDee was wonderful and a true inspiration to those of us who are less than competent and comfortable in the kitchen.
