Please note:  This class is exclusively focused on your skills with using and caring for knives.   Food will not be served!    

Ed Bartush represents Wüsthof Cutlery and has been in the cutlery business over 20 years.  He has taught hundreds of these classes throughout a large portion of the country, including dozens of classes at Cooks’Wares.

So much of what you do in the kitchen begins with knives.  Good knife skills can change the way you feel about cooking and keep you safer.   Food preparation will become faster, easier and more enjoyable.  In some cases, the right cut can even improve the flavor of your food!  In our hands-on class, you will learn and practice the basics of cutlery:  how to stand, how to hold the knife for maximum performance, and the underlying principles of making various cuts.  Ed is ready to teach you techniques that are safe, efficient, easier on your hand and wrist, and produce attractive results.  You’ll improve all your prep skills, from straightforward vegetable cuts to basic carving.  During the evening Ed, with the assistance of well-qualified Cooks’Wares staff members, will guide you through all the points and techniques listed below, while explaining the anatomy of the most used tool in the kitchen – the knife.  Come hone your skills!
