I’ve always been one of those people who envy home cooks that use proper knife skills and can cut veggies quickly. Just think of the time savings in the kitchen if you were better and faster at cutting and prepping the vegetables, right?!
So, when my friend, Monica, suggested we take a Knife Skills 101 class offered by Central Market in Austin, I was totally up for it. It was so much fun! Next time, I really need to read the instructions for the class first, because my friends and I ate dinner together at the cafe downstairs and then headed up to the class… where they proceeded to serve us dinner. Whoops! My husband was happy with our stir fry leftovers, though!
We learned so many great tips and cut an onion, a pepper, a carrot and a tomato. It doesn’t sound like a lot of items for 2 hours, but we were really concentrating on using our new techniques. Cindy, our instructor, came around to each of us and literally guided our hands and arms to use the right technique. She was so patient and knowledgeable.
One of the things that she said was to go home and USE the new skills, otherwise we would forget. With that in mind, I made this quick video explaining some of the most helpful takeaways from the class. I hope you can learn a few tricks to help you out in the kitchen as well!
This was my first video ever, so please be kind! And I’d love it if you would subscribe and give a thumbs up on YouTube. Julie, this one is for you! Thanks for the encouragement. <3
