I thoroughly enjoyed this knife skills class. While I already knew my way around the kitchen quite well, I thought it a great idea to start again with the basics to see if I could get a bit faster and more efficient in my slicing and dicing!
I did learn quite a few new techniques that will save me valuable time in dicing, segmenting and otherwise cutting, fruits and vegetables of all shapes and sizes as well as a much more efficient way of holding a knife and using the correct piston motion for more rapid and fluid cutting.
I also learned how to fillet a flat fish, which I had never previously tried to do. Stefan was a patient and relaxed teacher and had a very delightful attitude.
A bonus of the class was sitting down to enjoy each of the four courses (we sliced and diced and they cooked) with a glass of wine, while chatting with the other class participants (ranging from 12 to 50ish). We were also sent home with a handy packet containing all of the recipes printed on nice cardstock.
Following the class, I came home and quickly made the minestrone soup in no time flat using my new knife skills and the recipes provided. My family thought it was delicious and it took me half the time as usual to prepare. I plan to sign up for more classes.
