Kitchen knife skill courses: Be a cut above the rest

Using a kitchen knife is a skill in its own right and can make or break a meal

There is something spellbinding about watching a seasoned chef slice carrots at breakneck speed: the glint of steel, the row upon row of orange segments in perfect alignment like a concertina, swooshing as they slide off the blade. As I expected, and the best thing I’ve taken away from this class – aside from 10 intact digits and more ways to slice a carrot that I ever thought possible – is the confidence that, with guidance and practice, we can all bring a slice of precision into our own kitchens.

We will demonstrate and explain how to use a variety of chefs knives and how they are safely used and kept. There will be an opportunity for you to do this yourself, which will enhance your skills and increase you confidence. By selecting the correct knife for the job, your cooking can become far more effective and enjoyable.


  • We will together make a classic Minestrone soup.  Then you will know your Macédoine from your Julienne!
  • We will then prepare a fresh organic chicken by preparing for classic dishes.
  • Lastly, we will show you how to descale and fillet a whole fresh fish.
