Learning proper knife skill technique helps you be more efficient in the kitchen!
Oh, and, yes– prepare and eat more home-cooked meals for you and your family
All video lessons are under 10 minutes and the entire course is less than 2 hours!
We're getting right into it! You'll learn how to hold your knife the right way, practice honing (which is different than sharpening) and begin testing out different cutting methods and motions. You'll submit videos for feedback in this module
Once you've got the basic techniques down, we move to applying that to actual knife cuts like small, medium and large dice, julienne and of course we cover the onion and garlic and best techniques to get through them. You'll submit videos for feedback in this module
Ever wonder what kinds of knives to use when? We cover that as well as the parts of the knife and its qualities so you're prepared and know what to look for if you ever want to upgrade.
This module covers knife safety, care and sharpening (because a sharp knife is a safe and happy knife) so your knives last you a lifetime!

After spending 12 years cooking professionally in NYC, I became a personal Chef and food blogger but that didn’t quite connect with the calling on my heart–it was the teaching throughout that really made an impact. Now as a home cook myself, I can see how much knife skills are fundamental and I want to teach you the technique (and give you feedback) so you can chop with ease!
Do I get to keep the videos?
Yes! Your one-time payment gets you access to all the lessons and any updates I make.
How much time do I need to devote to this?
The course is self-paced and you have access to return to it as much as you want, but my personalized feedback is only for 4 weeks (starts when enrollment period closes) Each video is under 10 minutes and the entire course is under 2 hours so you can binge it if it's easier, or focus on the first two modules to optimize my feedback and then get to the other videos later!
Do I need special or expensive knives?
Not at all! You need one Chef knife or similar and a cutting board.
Do I need FB to join?
You don't need FB to join because we use a different app for video feedback. The FB group is just extra support if needed.
I'm pretty good with chopping. Can this still help?
My experience has been that home cooks don't know what they don't know and settle when their knife skills can be WAY better and it can enhance their chopping and food prep significantly.
