knife skills: slicing through the basics
Asheville, NC (french broad co-op)
Solid knife skills are the foundation for speed in the kitchen. They can be the mortar for the house you call "dinner at my place." With a little dose of confidence, a pinch of good form and a sharp knife, making dinner won't take you three hours!
Through this hands-on class you will not only feel at ease yielding a knife through a head of cabbage, but you will walk away after eating a meal made from the fruits of your labor. You will also no longer wrestle with a butternut squash or loathe slicing an onion. You will mince madly, dice with dignity, and learn to make gorgeous matchsticks.
You will also:
• Get tips on purchasing a proper knife.
• Learn to use a sharpening stone to sharpen a knife.
• Understand which knife to use for the right job.
• Receive one-on-one support on form and technique.
• Take home a packet of instructions, tips, and recipes covered in class.
So stop spending hours making dinner and don't go through another box of Bandaids. Get over the fears, have your questions answered, and start building solid knife skills for years to come.
Whether you only pick up a knife to butter your bread or you need support on form and technique, you will get something out of this class. Each student will be provided with an apron, and their own work station. Please come prepared to stand for the majority of the class in comfortable, close toed shoes. Chairs can certainly be provided, if you need a break. You also need to come ready to eat! We will be snacking and enjoying a delicious vegetarian meal made from the fruits of your labor.
