Knife Skills Cooking Class

  • Hands-on with some demonstration

Come and learn to slice and dice with our Cook Culture chef at our popular knife skills cooking class. A good knife is a primary tool for a functional and effective approach to food preparation. Feeling safe working with your primary tool, in the kitchen, is important to developing your overall comfort in the kitchen. Knife skills are the cornerstone of all learning at Cook Culture and we believe that those that feel comfortable using a knife will be more successful in the kitchen.

In our Knife Skills class you will:

  • Learn to properly hold a knife for maximum efficiency
  • Learn to how to make all the most useful cuts and slices, with different types of knives
  • Learn how use other sharp preparation tools, like a mandolin and peeling knife
  • Cook an awesome meal for yourself!

During the knife skills cooking class, the chef will present different cutting techniques that will be incorporated into recipes he will provide and prepare with you. You will then enjoy the fruits of your labour with a 3 course meal.

Our hands on cooking classes are set in a large communal teaching kitchen, which is similar to a home kitchen, just bigger! You will learn shoulder to shoulder from the instructor along with the other guests. After you learn to make the meal, everyone will sit together and enjoy the meal family style. In all of our classes, other than Knife Skills, you are welcome to bring your own beverages.

What an informative and entertaining time with our friends! Gained some knowledge about using different types of knives and to top it off the food prepared was amazing! I’d recommend this course to anyone. Thank you.

The knife skills class was extremely educational, entertaining and social. The instructor was professional, personable and entertaining. This class has peaked my interest to try other new and fun classes in the future.

I attended the Knife Skills class with Anna Hunt and it was an absolute blast! Super informative and a very relaxed atmosphere. The food was delicious, the knives were spectacularly sharp, and the techniques were definitely useful for a home cook. I had a great time and highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to elevate their knife skills from okay to spot on!

We learned some really cool and helpful tricks, and really felt like we got to know the knife better.

The staff and volunteers were really nice and encouraging. The other attendees were very pleasant. I learned a few things, enjoyed a tasty meal, and met some nice people…all good in my books!


I feel like I’ve been walking around with my shoe laces untied all this time and last night I learned how to tie them. Preparing even my dogs’ breakfasts this morning, I found myself holding my knife differently. And I oiled my wood cutting boards. Obviously I was greatly inspired and it was a great memory to make with my husband and our friend. We all felt very alive after that experience.

I feel like we’re all in a place where we can take better care of ourselves just from having this skill and the tips that were shared. Not because we have to but because now we want to. I will never eat an orange the way that I did before!

Honestly, it’s not every person that is so accomplished in their profession that can teach and I’m grateful that Cosmo decided to pursue that. And his kitchen helpers were really encouraging and friendly. Thanks for the (kn)life skills!
