Knife Skills Evening Session

This class is sold out.

You can add yourself to the wait list below, or register for our next available class:

Getting proficient with a knife takes lots of practice and our Knife Skills class will give you just that. David will guide you through a series of lessons as you learn a variety of different knife cuts. This class is not centered on preparing a meal but rather providing you with lots of repetition to get you cutting, slicing, and chopping comfortably. Using vegetables as your guide, you will learn the proper, and safest, ways to use, store, and hone your knives. 

This class does not prepare a meal. You will do a variety of cutting and chopping vegetables. We’ll send you home with veggies, and the SFCS recipe for Minestrone Soup so you can put them to good use.

Note: This class is available with or without a Wusthof 8" Classic Chef's Knife.

This is an immersive, hands-on cooking class. You will be on your feet cooking most of the time so please wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes.
