Learn how to use and care for knives properly, on a cookery course in Birmingham

Starting with the basics of choosing the right knife for the right task, and keeping your knives in peak condition, expert cook Lap-fai Lee will guide you through some fantastic recipes that will enable you to learn all the essential knife skills – from deboning a chicken leg for Karaage Japanese fried Chicken, chopping an onion in double-quick time, cutting lots of vegetables to make an amazing salsa, slaw and stir-fry.

Throughout the evening we’ll taste the fruits of our labour.

The hands-on workshop lasts three hours (including eating time) and will end with a knife sharpening demonstration using a whetstone and a chance to sharpen your own knives and ask all knife related questions!

Please feel free to bring your own knives.

The course takes place on a weekday evening from 6.30pm-9.30pm at Loaf in Stirchley, South Birmingham. You’ll feel right at home at Loaf, and everything you learn will set you up for recreating at home with confidence!

All refreshments, equipment, recipes and aprons are provided. You will also receive a handout.

Please note, this course is not suitable for Coeliacs or Vegans. Please email us if you need to know more about the allergens in this course.

This Course runs on a weekday evening every other month except August and December.
