Free online knife skills class on Craftsy

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've been fortunate over the years to learn knife skills from chefs and in classes.  Although, I always find I can learn more.  I recently came across an online class via Craftsy on knife skills.  Best of all, it's free!  I thought others would find it interesting, especially since I had yet to receive instruction about how to open a beer bottle with my chef's knife.  The link below should take you where you need to go to check it out.

I also found this video series useful.http://stellaculinary.com/knife-skill-video-techniques-hd

I use more japanese equipment and techniques now, but this is a good foundation to start.

I did the Craftsy class this week. I learned some new tricks and refinements to my skills. It was worth the time. I didn't agree with everything taught but it wasn't unreasonable by any stretch. I just think there are some better ways to do some things.

I agree with you about the Craftsy on-line class.  I learned some new things, confirmed many things I already do, and didn't agree with everything.  I will admit I was surprised to watch how to open a beer bottle with my chef's knife.  The more I learn, the more proficient I become.

It never occured to me that it could be broken down like that.  I just used my knife.

I just watched through the whole Craftsy series.  Starting with lesson 4 I was learning some new tricks.  The price is right too!
