KNIFE SKILLS WORKSHOP
Better technique makes cooking more efficient and more fun! Come enjoy a one night course with me and learn how to improve your skills. If you don't yet have a knife, we'll teach you what to look for as well and you may use one of mine for the night or one from our BACE pantry.)
Do you know your brunoise from your batonnet? What is the difference between chiffonade and julienne? The knife is one of the most used tools in the kitchen, so it is important to know how to use it safely and effectively. In this introduction to knife skills, we'll hone basic skills, learn tips and tricks, then practice fundamental cuts for vegetables. We will mince, dice, brunoise, julienne, and chop our way to dishes like hearty Vegetable Soup, caramelized Onion Tart, and Apple Crumble. Finally, we'll cover how to purchase, clean, sharpen, and store knives. Bring one large and one small knife to class (chef's knife and paring knife). A $20 food fee is included in the course fee.
