Once you learn how to properly use your knives, you will not only improve how you cook, but cooking will become easier and more enjoyable. The key to good knife skills is an understanding of the basic knife grip and cutting techniques. When used properly, your knife will perform much more efficiently. Once mastered, the knife skills you’ll pick up in this seminar will help you reduce your prep-time in the kitchen and improve your confidence while slicing and dicing. Choosing the correct knife for the job is also fundamentally important. Each kind of knife plays an important, specific role in the kitchen. In this seminar, we’ll discuss the best uses and practical applications for many kinds of Western and Asian knives—from parers to slicers, chef’s knives to santokus, and bread knives to cleavers. We will review basic cutting techniques; how to choose a knife; differences in types, styles and shapes of knives; and basic safety, storage and knife care.
