Through a combination of demonstration and hands-on experience, our chef tutor will instruct you in the precise art of cutting, filleting, deboning, carving, selection, handling, sharpening and preservation of knives to give you the professional touch in the kitchen.
This workshop offers a practical, hands-on experience aimed at developing your cutting skills, while providing essential understanding of how the right cut can improve the flavour and texture of all dishes. You will gain a greater understanding of how to select, use, sharpen and maintain your knives.
