I took a Knife Skills class tonight at The Brooklyn Kitchen

Every neighborhood needs to have a well designed kitchen space led by a passionate group of experts.

I learned how to:

  • safely and properly cut all kinds of vegetables using ten or so different techniques
  • how to butcher a chicken
  • how to make a vegetable or chicken stock from the scraps (every home cook throws away hundreds of dollars of food every year)

If you live in NYC, visit the Brooklyn Kitchen and Meat Hook. You’ll be glad you did. If you don’t live in NYC, start something similar in your city.
