The stools could be a little more comfortable. but we thoroughly enjoyed the class. Linda and her cullinary assistant had a great combination of history of knives, teaching each type of knife and encouraging people who needed help.
Did you (or want to) purchase merchandise in the store as a result of the class? If not, what can we do to earn your retail business?
Yes, we bought a knife sharpener, two cutting board matts with angles and sizes for strips or julienne. We bought a 'ketchup' bottle to use as a vinegar water cleanser.

I would recommend the knife skills class to all! Comment on this surgery: I would add a N/A to # 3 &4 - you have to answer to submit. I answered based on the salsa Linda made from our chopping!

I was sorry that I didn't bring my knives to class. However I must admit I wasn't informed to do so when I signed up and didn't see it in the reminder email that went out. Other than that all the information and skills acquired were excellent.

The instructor was: Linda is a fantastic instructor, she held our attention and we learned the entire time.

The atmosphere was: A kitchen needs to be Cheery and Fun to work in. You learning kitchen is very well set up and the right size for learning (right amount of students for hands on training).

Complexity of the recipes: We did not really have a recipe, but the instructions given on how to handle and use the knives was right on.

The food was: We enjoyed the fresh chips and dip after all the points on how to use the knifes of all sizes.

The skills that I learned were: After all these years of using knives in and out of the kitchen, we are boyscouts at heart and have taken Hunter Safety. We really liked the fact that Linda made us pass the knife in the correct fashion and say thank you before we let go. Everyone should do that with any knife of hunting tool along with in the kitchen. Now every thing we did in class gave Don and I a new out look on how to use our good knives. Thank you Linda!

The overall experience was: Don and I learn things that surprised use after we have been cooking for 50+ years. We have already started using the things we learned

The instructor was: Linda was great! She is VERY knowledgable and has the perfect demeanor for the type of class I was looking for.

Complexity of the recipes: There wasn't much in the way of recipes...this was the beginning knife skills class. But for all the different forms of slicing, dicing, chopping and mincing we did - we did get a pretty cool Pico de Gallo out of the deal!

The skills that I learned were: Extremely useful even. I'm already practicing and prepping myself for the advanced class!

Additional comments and observations

The instructor was: I liked that he struck the right balance between "informant" and "salesperson". I am very turned off by the "hard sell" and felt he wasn't ever pressuring us to buy--he was just informing us of what was available, what specials we could take advantage of and what he uses frequently.

The atmosphere was: I liked the size of the class.

The food was: I actually didn't try the salsa, but my husband liked it a lot.

The skills that I learned were: I ended up purchasing two knives after learning that the ones we had were much too big for me to grip properly. What a difference when I was cooking last night!! LOVE the new ones.
