I learned a lot. Thought Emma was a great. She was professional, supportive and made the class fun while focusing on knife skills and safety.

A lovely instructor but the class itinerary was a little unexpected. I was hoping for a lesson to hone my knife skills and learn how to properly use a knife and while I definitely learned a bunch of useful things, I don’t think I’m any better at the skill of cutting, sadly. Still a fun evening and great experience, I just didn’t get what I expected!

The class was fun and interesting. The size could be smaller at the venue. More cutting of items would be addition. But over all a good class. The food was tasty too

I was glad to have an introduction into several skills, particularly sharpening knives. I found that I already knew several of the techniques, but it's very good to review. In future I think it would be good to learn how to debone a chicken or the like, but that probably does not fit the descriptor of Cooking Basics. The instructor was kind, patient, and relaxed.

Wish there was more knife skills and less cooking.
