About the Class

Your instructor, Chef Ashley, has been teaching cooking classes since 2014. With her extensive culinary background and a passion for teaching, she creates a comfortable and engaging learning environment for all students.


A chef's knife is one of the most versatile tools in the kitchen. As Chef Ashley can testify, once you understand how to use it correctly, it becomes an indispensable ally. Not only does it save you time, but it also eliminates the need for surplus kitchen gadgets, saving you money, time and space.

During this hands-on class, you will:


  • Learn the basics of knife skills including safety and terminology.

  • Get practical experience with a chef's knife including how to using a honing steel.

  • Learn a range of specific cuts: julienne, dice, bias cut, mince, and baton.

  • Understand the importance of good knife skills for everyday cooking

As Susan Schopflin, one of our previous students, noted: "Thank you! This was such a fun team-building experience!" With real-time feedback and small class sizes, our in-person instruction provides a unique learning opportunity that you can't get from online classes.
