Tired of those dull kitchen knives in the draw? Join us to begin to master your knife techniques.
With help from our experts, you’ll learn how to sharpen and maintain knives. You’ll learn which knives are recommended for which tasks and work through a variety of practical activities to develop your skills.
By discovering the correct and various cutting techniques, you’ll develop skill and speed in your cooking. We start by working through a range of vegetables, then it’s speed chopping herbs for Salsa Verde, fish filleting and carving a cooked chicken.
This is also great introduction to the wider portfolio and the style of our courses, although it is activity based rather than recipe focused.
We are also passionate about carbon steel knives and offer a range of Japanese blades of varying sizes and prices in the Cook Shop. We also have our own knife sharpener for stainless steel blades, also available in the Cook Shop.
