Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
By the end of this class your student would have learned:
1. Knife safety, how to hold and use a knife in the kitchen.
2. How to chop, dice, mince, chiffonade, julienne.
3. Why do Chefs use different cuts and cutting terms in a recipe.
4. How to care for and choose a Chef Knife.
5. Tried 4 new recipes using their new skills. 
6. Become more confident with using a Chef Knife and be able to continue to cook at a higher level.
My second degree is in Culinary Arts (my first degree is Psychology), and I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Miami. Since graduation, some of my industry experience includes cooking at a Disney Resort as well as Catering for Aramark. I have also owned my own catering and cake business. I have taught cooking and baking classes to both adults and kids online and in person.  

I am so excited to be able to share my knowledge and look forward to seeing your student in class!

0Chef Knife (The one in your home will work)
Sturdy Cutting Board (wooden or solid plastic preferred (not bendable or flimsy plastic, and a decent size for your student)

The recipe that will be posted each week will also contain a supply list. The supply list will list everything your student needs to have in place before class starts. For example, gathering ingredients, bowls, baking dishes, measuring cups etc. Usually these items are already in your kitchen. This is called Mise En Place and I would list this on each recipe for class.
I cannot stress enough that this is an active Knife Skills class. Your child will learn how to use a Chef Knife in this class, as well as use the stove and the oven. Parental supervision is STRONGLY recommended. I will stress knife safety in this class each day. However if you are more comfortable, knife gloves for kids can be purchased online in preparation for this class. This will help your child feel more confident as they learn and master these skills. 

If your student has any allergies, please contact me and I would be happy to provide you with a recipe with substitutions. This also applies to students that wish to join the class but may need vegetarian friendly substitutions. I have personally followed a vegetarian diet for many years and will be happy to make sure your student feels included.
