Paris International Cooking School
Have you ever dreamed of cutting as fast and well as the chefs on cooking shows? And, of course, without cutting your fingers. Then this 2-hour Kitchen Knife Intro Class is for you to start with.

In this 2-hour hands-on practical Introductory Class, we will introduce you to the world of chef's knives.

We will teach you how to choose the right type of knife for the right job. We will also cover knife sharpening, and a number of different cuttings including brunoise, julienne, lozenges, shredding, speed cutting, potato shaping, lemon crowning, and more. We will also teach you how to slice and dice onions efficiently.

You will also be shown how to de-bone meat (and then practice the de-boning technique) as well as a demonstration on how to fillet fish and de-bone fish.
