Last week, I took the “Knife Skills” class hosted by Brooklyn Kitchen. It was chosen as “The Best Cooking Class in NYC” by New York magazine. I cook almost every day so I thought I knew a lot about the knife already, but actually… I learned a lot from the class’s instructor, Ken. He is a professional chef who used to cook at the Saul restaurant, Brooklyn Museum!
The class started to learn knife essentials – the variety of knives and cutting boards, the correct way of holding and horning a knife, and the basic posture and knife movement. Then, Ken showed us how to cut carrots, onions, green peppers and let us try it ourselves! It was very hands-on. Ken moved around the teaching tables and gave us great tips. The best technique I learned was how to chop onions quickly and efficiently!
Then, he gave us a demonstration on how to chop garlics and herbs, then dissected a whole chicken! Two hours passed quickly. It was fun and educational!
Brooklyn Kitchen sells a variety of kitchenware and cooking gears, in addition to food, spice, cooking books, and more.
