HELD OVER - 2nd Night

Knowing how to choose, use and care for knives is one of the most essential parts of any cook’s skill set. Join veteran professional Chef Michael Kirkwood for a solid primer on knife fundamentals, including selecting the best knife for the job, shopping for a decent knife, as well as knife care and maintenance including sharpening and honing. If you have your own knives, feel free to bring them to class for a sharpening!

In addition to learning about the knives themselves, participants will get ample opportunity to practice a range of different hands-on knife skills as part of the preparation of a delicious chicken taco menu with pico de gallo, mango salsa, as well as a chicken stock.

Topics covered will include:
• General skills: peeling, batonettes, alumettes (matchsticks), julienne, dice & brunoise
• Specific vegetable skills: chopping onions, mincing garlic, seeding peppers, tomatoes, chiffonade & mincing herbs
• Fruits: dicing mangos & citrus “supreme”
• Breaking down & deboning a whole chicken + some specialty cuts
