Event Start Date: 12/01/2020 14:30
Event End Date: 12/01/2020 18:30
‘I wish I could chop like a Chef’ is something we hear often…well you can with a little instruction and some practice.
If you love cooking as much as we do good knives, technique and rhythm are an asset to the enthusiastic cook. On the other hand blunt knives and poor technique can be frustrating and even dangerous.
Brian has taken thousands of Chefs through their ‘knife drill’ to help them choose, use and maintain their precious knives and we want to share that experience with you. Selecting, sharpening and using knives safely, fluently and confidently is the foundation to enjoying your cooking. You’ll learn all about knives, how to create the all-important ‘edge’ how to maintain it and care for these valuable tools.
Once in the kitchen we’ll show you the best way to hold the knives to give you better precision, stability and speed and just as important…what to do with the non cutting hand!
You’ll make minestrone, vegetables for stir fry, pancetta chicken wrapped chicken and ‘twiddly bits.’
Ingredients, refreshments, equipment and aprons are provided for the session.
All products are to take home.
