Event description

Description

In this hands-on introduction to Milk Street knife skills, you'll slice, smash and chop your way through some of our favorite recipes. You'll learn how to handle a Western chef's knife, a Chinese vegetable cleaver, a Japanese santoku and a paring knife, and when to use each. We'll discuss the parts of each knife, from tip of blade to heel. We’ll tackle ginger and garlic with a cleaver and a microplane. As we learn, we'll practice our skills by making Thai-style coleslaw and white-cooked chicken to eat with rice for dinner.

This is a hands-on cooking class.
