Last month, or maybe two months ago, Tammy from Adventures of a Florida Girl in DC posted a question on Twitter to see if anyone could recommend a knife skills class. I jumped in and offered my services (so to speak).
You see, I've assisted a knife skill class at Sur La Table, and have been a witness to numerous knife skills mini lessons by Robyn Webb. I was ready to teach! Adventures in Shaw jumped in and offered her beautiful kitchen as our classroom. Soon, we had Brian from Urban Bohemian, Alejandra from One Bite at a Time and Thrifty DC Cook on hand. I had my lesson plan in mind, my knife sharpened and my cutting board ready to go. What we did not expect was the insane amount of snow! We had to cancel the class. I was sad, to say the least.
Not to worry! Last Saturday we finally gathered for the knife skills lesson. (After reading my post, I really hope you will check out reviews from Adventures of a Florida Girl in DC, Adventures in Shaw, Urban Bohemian, and One Bite at a Time. Also, huge THANK YOU to Adventures in Shaw for all the photos you see here (we took the photo class together, and it has obviously paid off) and to Brian for the videos from the class.
On the "menu" for the class we had onions, garlic, oranges, peppers and potatoes.
