Knife Skills

June 25 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$30.00 – $85.00

Appropriate for ages 7 and up!!  This class is about breaking bad habits and building proper skills to be more kitchen efficient!  It’s literally the best class eva!!!

This is by far our most popular workshop!  Both young and old need this class- we break the bad habits of the adults, and get the kids started on the right track. If you want to become a faster, safer, and more efficient cook, then this is the class for you!  This is one of our favorite classes to teach, because it is  truly life-changing in the kitchen. Not only will the education be on using your knife, but we’ll also talk about how to find and buy a good knife, how to store it, clean it, and sharpen it!  We’ll get in the kitchen to learn all of the basic knife cuts and a whole lot more!  We will reinforce good knife skills in this class and put those chopping skills to use in seasonal dishes such as: Bruschetta, Broccoli Cauliflower Salad, Black Bean and Corn Salsa, Cold Veggie Pizza, Asian Noodle Salad, Roasted Corn Guacamole with Fresh Fried Chips, Fruit Salsa and Matchstick French Fries with Rosemary Salt.  This is a great class for adults and kids, and to grab some great new staple recipes, too!

COVID 19 UPDATE: At this time we are allowing optional masking for all students and it is no longer mandatory to wear a mask to class due to the recent state mandate enforced 2/28/22.  We will be providing hand sanitizer at the door upon your arrival. If you have any symptoms of COVID 19, Influenza, or other illness, have been around someone with symptoms, or have traveled outside the country recently we are asking that you please stay home and find someone to replace your ticket. We reserve the right to send any attendees home if we suspect illness. This is for the safety of our employees and customers. Thank you for supporting us during this challenging time! We will do our best to make our classes as educational and fun as ever.  Class ending times may vary. Please wear closed-toed shoes and wear your hair up off your shoulders.  Bring  a beverage to drink if you wish. We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink. Byob if you wish.

Our classes are popular and often sell out!  You must cancel your registration at least 5 days in advance of the class date to receive the opportunity to raincheck your tickets to another class (there is a fee to do so). We do not offer refunds for any reason, including Covid related issues. There is a $25 fee (per ticket) to raincheck your tickets to another future class, which is due at the time that you move your tickets. You can raincheck your tickets by calling the school at 309-263-6020 or by emailing us your request to raincheck at thecookeryinc@gmail.com.  Tickets canceled the day before or on the day of class will not receive a refund or rain check opportunity for any reason (even Covid / exposure related – we simply cannot accommodate for this).  You may gift or sell your tickets to someone else (for no fee) if you are not able to come- this is the best option if you have to cancel.

If you have a cardboard gift card with a 3-digit number and want to redeem it for this class, you must call or email to reserve your class spot prior to the class selling out.  If you reserve your spot with a gift card and do not show, you will forfeit the amount owed for the class from your gift card. To cash in your cardboard gift card, contact us at thecookeryinc@gmail.com

If your gift card has a 16-digit code, you can cash it in online when you purchase your ticket.  Codes are case sensitive and require the dash marks to be entered to process the code
