Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

School Notes:  

For NYC In-Person Classes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to enjoy at the sit-down meal (not including our baking or dessert classes).

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden work table that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spatial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Refund Policy

For Public Classes:

We have a firm business days cancellation policy (for credit only) to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student.

Please note: Boot Camps require business days notice to be rescheduled.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are simply not able to accommodate last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand that these things do happen.

Classes are not refundable.

For Culinary Boot Camps:

Because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer make-up classes to everyone who misses a class, as it happens too often. As a consolation we have two options for making up missed classes, provided you alert us ahead of time.

  • Send a friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or
  • Opt for our “Plan B” program: You can register for any single class that covers the same/similar coursework you missed, provided it still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats. Please note, this is a last-minute, drop-in option, not something that can be scheduled more than 2 days in advance. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing).

In any event where a customer wants to cancel their enrollment and is eligible for a full refund, a 5% processing fee will be deducted from the refund amount.

Thank you for understanding!

Review Summary by CourseHorse

Students who took classes at Knife Skills 101 had positive things to say about their experience. They appreciated the knowledgeable and informative instructors who provided good instructions and kept the class moving at a good pace. Students learned a variety of chopping techniques and were able to practice under supervision. They also learned about knife selection, sharpening, and maintenance. Students enjoyed the delicious meals prepared from the vegetables they chopped and ate together as a group. Overall, students felt more confident in their knife skills and were excited to try out their newfound knowledge in their own kitchens. Quotes: - "I came into this class with no prior knowledge of how to hold a knife, how to properly chop/dice/mince, and certainly no idea how to sharpen a knife. I left with skills in all of those!" - "I felt like I got a lot out of it - not just a sharpening stone and the confidence to use a chef's knife and start cooking more vegetables, but a delicious meal with some friendly people too!" - "John was a great teacher...he asked questions to keep us engaged, showed us a technique and then let us practice it right away, and just had a very interesting non-threatening style of teaching."
