Knife Class or Frenching the Julianne
So I took a knife skills class over the weekend at D.C.'s newest cooking school, CulinAerie. It's great set up and I had a hell of a lot of fun playing around in a kitchen filled with professional equipment. Not only that, but it turns out there's a lot I don't know about kitchen knives. I hold them wrong, I use small cutting motions on occasion, I slice tomatoes with a bread knife; my screw ups go on and on. Well, no more. Well, maybe some more. I really don't mind cutting tomatoes with a bread knife. It does an awful nice job. Anyway, I did a write up of the class for D.C. Foodies.
