Knife Skills and Cooking Techniques

This one day course is designed to make you feel more confident about your knife skills. You will be taught how to use and sharpen knives and which is the correct knife for which job. Once you have spent some time chopping and slicing you will start to go over some of the basic techniques that every cook should know in order to make their food taste much better. e.g. how to sweat vegetables and brown meat, how much seasoning to use and the best way to make use of herbs. Dishes covered on the course may include:
 
Joint a Chicken
Coq au Vin
Burmese Chicken Salad
Fillet a Round Fish
Chargrilled Trout with Salsa Verde
