Intermediate Knife Skills - Tues Apr 16th PM

with Amy Church


Kitchen Basics Class

If you’ve already taken our Basic Knife Skills Class and are ready to learn more, check out this hands-on class. We'll start with a quick review of the chopping, slicing, dicing, and julienne techniques taught in the beginning class. Then we'll progress with more advanced techniques including the contour cut for peeling items such as melon and citrus; using the knife tip to quickly and thinly slice delicate foods such as mushrooms; the drag cut for wet foods; cutting up pineapple and peppers; plus, fun drink garnishes! The class will end with demonstrations of how to easily truss a whole chicken for roasting and how to properly cut up a whole chicken into parts.

PLEASE NOTE: Knives are provided for use during this class. You are welcome to bring your own knife as well if you wish, but we promise ours will be sharper! Please also bring an apron if you wish to wear one.

This class is for ages 14+.

ALSO: The chicken segment at the end of this class is demonstration only. However, if you'd like to bring your own whole chicken, you are welcome to do so and follow along with Chef Amy. Please remember to bring a container to take home your chicken pieces. Thanks!

**Class attendees will receive a special $15 discount card towards their choice of Wüsthof German-made cutlery. 

If the class you want is full, please click anyway and get on the waiting list. This helps me gauge interest in adding more class dates. Thanks!
