Sharpen Your Knife Skills with CUTCO

Alexa Clark hosts Sharpen Your Knife Skills with CUTCO

“A kitchen without a knife is not a kitchen.” – Masaharu Morimoto

Inspired by some amazing steak knifes, I’ll be hosting a hands-on knife skills evening sponsored by CUTCO and you are invited!  The event is free, courtesy of CUTCO.

Book it!Knives are the most important tools in our kitchens and how you use them can change a dish from just okay to restaurant quality. Working with the CUTCO team and Chef Neil Noseworthy, we’ve designed an intermediate-level, hands-on training session which will take you beyond the basic slice and dice.  You will learn skills and knife techniques in 3 main areas – basic butchery, prep and garnish; along with proper knife care and knife selection. Mincing & chiffonading herbs We’ll be preparing a series of dishes that utilize a range of knives and different knife techniques and you will have the opportunity to practice each of the skills and techniques you have just learned.  You will leave with new and refreshed knife skills allowing you to elevate your dishes and presentation to white linen levels. In addition to the CUTCO team, you’ll be learning from Chef Neil Noseworthy, a rock and roll catering chef who has been personal chef to Mick Jagger and toured with U2 and the Rolling Stones. You know there will be stories! The evening will include samples of the dishes we prepare together and wine from Château des Charmes, all sponsored by Cooking with CUTCO Book it!

Michele-Marie Beer yay! But remember cooking with a sharp knife is ALWAYS safer than cooking with a dull one. If only because you are paying way more attention. (It's actually because you aren't putting so much effort into it and the knife will do the work.) Yes I'm a knife geek.
