Knife skill class - waste of money or not? I am 30 min away from NYC. Will travel.
If you want to learn how to do things like how break down chicken and vegetables there are many different methods. That being said, video's and books are really great to see multiple methods of say breaking down a chicken, or peeling and dicing onions. In addition most classes are going to focus on things like how to hold a knife, how to use the claw grip, stance and maybe a few basic breakdowns like a chicken, onion, and maybe a carrot or pepper. I doubt these are things you wouldn't pick up just as easily from videos and books.I know little, though I cook and use knives regularly. I would like to know what is the proper way to cut things, i.e. vegetables, meats, fish, poultry, etc.
