About the workshop:
Essential Knife skills: Safety, slicing and sharpening
Galen Garretson of Town Cutler will lead a discussion on knife safety, and demonstrate a few basic, but essential knife skills for every home chef. Galen will also teach a basic 3-step process for sharpening knives at home. This class will include a discussion of the qualities of different steels, different methods and techniques, and a demonstration with Japanese Whetstones. This will be a demonstration only, and there is no need to bring your own knives.
