Knowing how to choose, care for, and use knives correctly can make your confidence in the kitchen soar! You will focus on knife skills and practice on a bunch of veggies for a salad. Meanwhile, our Chef will make and serve Shrimp Scampi Linguine for the main course so you don't go home hungry!
This class is just you and knives - learning how to properly care for and hold a knife, different types of knives, then chopping, slicing, dicing, julienning, and more. You will create a Panzanella with all the ingredients that you practice your Knife Skills on. You won't make the Shrimp Scampi and linguine, but you'll see how it's done, and more importantly, you get to eat it.
You'll have the opportunity to use two Asian and one European knife during class. For all Knife Skills class participants, we offer a special 25% discount on Global, Messermeister and Shun knives the day of class.
Minimum age requirement is 16. Alcohol will not be available until during the meal.
Guests receive a 20% discount on future classes and 10% discount on any in-store purchase on the day of class (does not compound w/ other discounts)!

Chef Instructor: Ramon Montes
Ramon was born and raised in San Diego, California. While going to college for his dance degree, he was also working at local restaurants where his passion for food really kicked in. Ramon decided to retire from the stage and go back to school for his Culinary Arts degree. He’s always been interested in not only how to cook, but also what happens to the food when we cook it. From the shared cultural experience to the science of cooking, Ramon loves every aspect of food but also loves teaching others about the art. Growing up in a traditional Mexican household, food was always a major part of his life, and now he is glad to share his knowledge and culture with others. He hopes you leave his classes not only learning about food, but with more passion for cooking.
