Knife Skills Class
You have asked; we are delivering a class devoted to knife skills with Chef Robin Nathan!
SAT, NOV 8th 12:00 - 2:30 pm
Good knives and impeccable knife skills are critical for all cooks and chefs. Knowing how to properly use a good chef's knife will shorten the time you spend in the kitchen and give you the confidence to tackle any recipe. Repetition and practice are at the heart of the development of high level knife skills and when used properly, your knife performs much more efficiently. Chef Robin takes you beyond dicing and chiffonade, exploring advanced knife techniques, the best use for different knives, safety, storage, and care.

Class participants will receive 20% off all cutlery the day of the class and will receive free same day knife sharpening for any knives brought in that day (no serrated or scissors, please).

On the menu: Sauteed Shrimp with Middle Eastern Vegetable Salad, Warm Sweet Potato and Kale Salad, and Pear Crumble
