Knife Skills 101

February 14, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST

A sharp knife–and knowing how to use it correctly–is one of the most important tools in the kitchen. It can also be one of the most intimidating!

In this hands-on class, you’ll learn how to use your knives and other time-saving kitchen utensils with ease and confidence. We know that chopping can get exhausting and work up an appetite, so we’ll finish at the farm table to enjoy a lovely meal made with all our practice cuts. Join us for an evening of confidence-building in the kitchen!

This class is BYOB and vegan/vegetarian friendly.
