This was such a great experience! It was given to me as a gift, and I was able to choose my own class. I did knife techniques because this was my first class, and it seemed like a good idea to start with something that would help me on a daily basis. This was the right choice for me. Turns out I've been holding my knife wrong all this time, and I feel safer with a blade now. It will take some practice to un-learn the old way, but I'm excited that I now know how to hold the knife more safely and, with time, hopefully be able to cut more quickly and with less fatigue. The instructor was awesome (I am bad with names and I don't remember it). On top of the knife demonstration and instruction, he had all kinds of great cooking advise, and the meal we all made together was delicious. Please note, the only knife that is used is the chef's knife. I wish there was a little more instruction on other kinds of knives, but I didn't mind too much, since the chef's knife is my go-to 95% of the time.

Chef Nora provided a very helpful and fun class, she was very well instructed and provided great detail when going through our directions. We learned certain dicing techniques, how to mince and slice certain foods, how to properly hold a kitchen knife, and provided a delicious meal for everyone once our class has finished preparing the food.

Our chef, Nora, was a great instructor - very friendly and informative. The MacDougal Street kitchen setup was unique, cozy and accommodating. The experience was great value for the money. About a three hour hands-on session the covered basic cutting and cooking fundamentals for newbies with clear explanations behind the 'why' in terms of technique and approach. Learning the proper way to slice, dice, cube and prep and enjoying the fruits of our labor by eating what we made was a great way to spend 3 hours in the East Village.
