This skills class will set a strong foundation for learning new and more complicated knife cuts.  There will be a review of proper knife care, and a short intro into the different types of knives available. The cutting portion will begin with getting to know your knife, mastering your grip, and knowing what to do with your guiding hand. 

We will review a series of different cuts and techniques including squaring off vegetables, fine julienne, chiffonade, and small dice brunoise cuts. There will also be some demo of other cutting and butchery techniques. We will finish class by having you practice your newly mastered skills slicing and dicing on your own.
