A hands-on class culminating in a dinner with wine and beer. Chef knives will be provided to students, though students may bring their own knife if they wish (please transport them safely).
Join 18 Reasons instructor Jen Nurse for a class in the basics of using your chef's knife at home. We will discuss the ins and outs of knife use, care and safety. You will walk away knowing how to maintain a sharp edge and the best way to cut vegetables and herbs. This is a great class for beginners.
This class includes our Knife Skills manual as well as our 30-page Cooking Fundamentals booklet and a coupon for 20% off an 18 Reasons class of your choosing. The vegetables cut in this class will be used to create our favorite Vietnamese Salad; wine, beer and bread will also be served.
