Are you a keen cook with a desire to improve your knife skills? Or do you simply want to know how to chop an onion like a pro? Join this knife skills masterclass and enhance your cooking skills by learning to slice, chop and dice with confidence.

The preparation of ingredients is often the most time-consuming part of cooking a meal, but having good knife skills makes light work of prepping food and reduce your cooking time considerably. Becoming a dab hand with your food prep helps you enjoy your cooking even more and allows you to become so much more confident in the kitchen. People with good knife skills are also more likely to try new dishes – and experiment in the kitchen!

This knife skills class teaches you about the range of knives available, what they should be used for and how to handle and maintain them. You will learn how to chop, slice and dice to save time and perfect your julienne, baton and chiffonade skills.

Guided by an expert chef, you'll learn to:

  • Use a correct knife safely and with confidence.
  • Prepare vegetables, fruit and herbs.
  • Joint a chicken.
  • Make a tomato salsa.
  • Cook a sizzling stir fry from the chicken and vegetables you have learnt how to prepare.

As part of your class, you'll enjoy a tasty lunch (made by you!) using the ingredients you've chopped with your new skills. You'll finish up this masterclass with a host of new abilities and some new recipes under your belt.

The Cooking Academy teaches people how to prepare and cook food from around the world in a professional, enthusiastic, creative and enjoyable way. We are unique in our approach to cookery by putting ingredients and their beneficial health properties at the heart of everything we teach.

We run a wide range of publicly available classes, social events for families and groups of friends. We also have an extensive corporate client base for whom we provide team-building events as well as corporate entertainment & hospitality events.

Our cookery school classes are entirely hands-on and taught by expert chefs in a home-from-home kitchen environment. Our ethos is to explain the chemical composition, Ayurvedic and herbal values of food so that recipes are nutritionally rich, look visually appealing, and taste divine. Our cookery classes and corporate events will change your perspective of food with a teaching methodology that makes no assumptions of your starting position but rather takes you by the hand on a journey of discovery, peppered with lots of hints and tips to give a technical understanding of why certain processes are necessary in cooking to broaden your knowledge.

Our recipes are straightforward to replicate at home and we always use fresh, ethically-sourced ingredients. We work in small groups so that the personal relationship with your chef and your fellow students can add to the richness of the day, whilst ensuring that everyone receives the right amount of one-to-one tutoring and the full attention of the chef taking the class.

We aim to be second to none in our marketplace, where you truly have a wonderful experience as well as learn skills that you can use for many years to come.
