If you’ve always wanted to improve your knife skills in the kitchen, then come along to our hands-on Knife Skills Class. This class is top of the range and will teach you everything you need to know about those all-important knives and how to properly use and look after them like a top chef.
After a warm welcome and a glass of wine, the class will start with an informative yet fun demonstration. Our head chef, and knife pro, will teach you how to slice, peel, chop, purée, julienne, chiffonade, concasse and segment – skills that will set you up for preparing* the evening’s carefully chosen 3-courses and more.
After the demonstration, you will get to bring out the knives and put your newfound knife knowledge to practice. The menu has specifically been chosen as the dishes require a wide range of different knife techniques that you will get to do, but don’t panic, our friendly chefs will be there to guide you in the right direction as well as recap over anything you may feel unsure about.
By the end of the class not only will you know how to use the essential kitchen knives but you will also be equipped with the skills to practise at home and perfect not just the technique but the finished product, making your food not just taste but look fantastic too!
*In order for you to focus on the class at hand and the skills you have come to learn – knife skills – the dishes will be prepared by you but cooked and served by the chefs. We really want you to get the most out of learning and practising knife skills in order for you to leave confident to practise at home so with time, the guidance of the chefs, and home practise, you will be a Jamie Oliver – or should we say Richard Horsford in no time!
Once the knives have chopped and the chefs have cheffed, you will get to sit down, admire and eat your beautiful handy work!
All our knives and chopping boards are available for sale in our shop (click here to view).
