Our popular Knife Skills course forms the back bone of many of our courses and will improve the effectiveness and enjoyment of your day to day cooking. Knowing the best knife and technique to use will improve your speed, make you a safer cook and eliminate unevenly-cooked dishes and poor flavour development.
Choosing a set of knives can be daunting. This course allows you to examine, handle and test different knives to make your decision easier. Crucially, you will learn how to look after your knives which will extend the life of your investment.
Typically, you will learn essential vegetable preparation, slicing, dicing and julienne, before moving on to techniques such as fish boning, jointing and skinning a chicken and looking professional when carving the Sunday roast! The course may also offer a national theme with Thai, Mexican or French cookery.
