A good, sharp knife is the single most important tool in your kitchen. If you know how to use it properly, the time you spend on your cutting board becomes just as fun as the time you spend stirring the pan. In this vegetarian edition of our popular Applied Knife Techniques class, we'll be making tabbouleh salad, roasted baby aubergines, and oven-baked falafel – but rather than relying on recipes, we'll teach you skills and techniques that you'll apply to all your cooking, especially how to chop, slice, and dice food like a pro. We'll also teach you how to look after your knives (storage, sharpening, cleaning) so they stay in good shape for years.

Why we love it
'These are the kind of crucial skills most chefs learn on the first day of culinary school. Keep practicing what you learn here and even the most tedious tasks – say, chopping an onion or crushing garlic – becomes downright joyful.'
