I wanted to remind you to check out Craftsy if you’ve not done so already. In addition to selling craft supplies of all kinds, they also offer online courses! This means you can learn how to quilt, sew, or cook – all from the comfort of your home. No need to schedule a sitter or pay for parking!
They also offer free courses as well and right now, one of these is a knife skills class.
Become faster and more accurate with your knife work, and create dishes that cook evenly and look truly professional. Guided by chef Brendan McDermott, you’ll explore proper hand placement and the four fundamental cuts. Learn to dice, mince and julienne a range of produce. Find out how to chop herbs without bruising them or losing flavor, and never again cry when cutting an onion. Uncover Brendan’s favorite shortcuts for working with butternut squash, pineapple, chiles, citrus and more. Discover the four knives every chef needs in their kitchen, and finish the course with a lesson on honing and sharpening your knives at home!
The class consists of 5 lessons, online support, and downloadable class materials. While there, you might take a peek at all the free online courses Craftsy has available!
