    Knife Skills

    (132)
    Knowing how to use knives skillfully is the foundation of all cooking, and should not be scary or frustrating. Many home and even professional cooks don't always wield a knife correctly, however, which increases food preparation time and makes the process harder, and less safe, than it should be. Good knives are the foundation of a well equipped kitchen. This class remedies all these basic issues: You will learn how to slice, dice, and chop in the safest and most efficient manner. Brendan McDermott, a professional chef and cooking instructor who started teaching knife skills at Brooklyn Kitchen in 2008 (New York declared his class Best Cooking Class of 2010), will guide you through the practice of keeping your knives sharp and handling them correctly. In his 10 years as a chef in New York, he has worked at Mesa Grill, RM, Patria, Olives, Alta, and Porchetta. He has also been featured on the show Working Class Foodies.

And once you do, you'll be able to enjoy homemade pasta in your own home, any time. This class will teach you how to make delicious pasta from scratch by letting you experiment with an easy egg pasta recipe and learning to knead the dough to perfection.
