Product Details

Featured in BBC Good Food, Evening Standard, and House & Garden, among others, our Applied Knife Techniques class gives you a practical understanding of how to use a knife correctly – easily the most important kitchen skill there is (and the most misunderstood). Through practice, practice, and more practice, we'll teach you how to correctly and safely handle knives; make classic French cuts (julienne, brunoise, chiffonade); and more. All this hard work results in a meal of roast poussin with citrus pan sauce; herb and fennel salad; and crispy roast potato 'gratin'. 

Think this class would make a perfect gift? We do too – that's why we offer Cook School Gift Cards, for one or two guests, in paper and digital formats. 

Age Restriction: 18+, or 16+ accompanied by an adult also attending the class

Why we love it

'This class teaches the kind of skills and techniques chefs learn on their first day of culinary school. After these three hours of hands-on practice, chopping an onion or peeling garlic will feel easy and enjoyable.'
