Knife Skills Classes

Cooking can be a chore, or it can be a pleasure. Knife skills can make prep work a breeze, helping you think—and cut—differently in the kitchen.

We pride ourselves on not just selling high-quality knives and accessories but also helping educate. We love helping you find the right knife for your hands and your cooking style. An essential element of our education component is making use of your favorite knives easier and more effective.

You’ll work with your classmates to prep ingredients and grill your homemade flatbread pizzas. We’ll provide beverages! Best of all, each attendee receives a gift of one pair of Wusthof kitchen shears!
