Have confidence in your ability to safely and accurately use a sharp knife, know what to look for when purchasing a good knife, and learn how to keep it sharp and maintained.
You will learn how to identify and understand the uses of various types of knives. Learn the best safe knife handling practices in a kitchen and your correct hand position and stance.
You’ll get to use several different knives and discuss sharpening tools (chef’s knife, paring knife, other bladed tools), handling basic knife cuts: slicing, dicing, chopping, and mincing.
We’ll use our skills to prepare and then eat the Crudite and Salsa Fresca we made in class.
