LESSONS-Basic Culinary Knife Skills
Most savory cooking requires a fundamental understanding of knife skills. We've all seen a celebrity chef dice an onion, create perfectly symmetrical julienned carrots or zest a lemon in record time. Without mastery of the basics, your culinary progress will be significantly slowed. I can teach you proper knife grip, safety, proper ergonomics, the anatomy and maintenance of the home knives you have and clear up the appropriate applications of what knives you have or may want to acquire. I'll get you started and we'll make something tasty out of the cuts we produce.

Kathleen does impeccable decorating, and her cookie recipes are packed with flavor. It's rare to find such beautiful cookies that taste so amazing. I had some of her gingerbread cookies in December, and have never had such gingery, crispy gingerbread. And they were sparkly and gorgeous just like snowflakes.
About Kathleen Claymore
I am a culinary arts professional with a AAAS from Wine Country Culinary Institute. Local food culure and culinary education are two of my biggest passions and best skills sets. I also have a small,... happy flock of pampered chickens which means fresh eggs to barter with. My culinary career is focused on teaching in individual, small or larger groups of up to 20, provided you have an appropriate space in which to work, and I regularly high schooled aged students the ins and outs of baking and pastry fundamentals. Some side skills you may want to learn from me are culinary math, recipe standardization, making purchase requisitions, kitchen organization, meal planning, economy of motion and a host of other soft skills that may sound less glorious, but are nonetheless vital if you want to up your cooking game at home or to ease you into the industry. show moreOpen to other proposals
