Coming into the class I was used to small knives (generally quite blunt) and was actually a little afraid of big sharp knives. Well I'm a changed person now. It's all in the hold and control. I never thought I would be so happy with chopping. Fabulous class. Would highly recommend. Paul was wonderful and knew his stuff. Class is 1.5 hours but easily could go on 2 hours with the many questions. The chicken salad is divine too.

Paul is an excellent teacher. Very clear, professional and patient. He knows how to adapt to each learner's pace while keeping the lesson moving. I had a great time.

I grew up in a household that loved to cook. Most of the fundamentals were taught to me at a young age when I used to assist my parents with prep work. Fast forward twenty years and I've started cooking at home for my family and found myself questioning my knowledge on some of the basics (eg. am I honing this japanese knife correctly; is there a faster way to dice this onion; etc). This class reinforced what I was taught when I was in my youth which were just the basics plus I learned a few new tricks (preparing julienned capsicum and carrots). The instructor was super nice and helpful. Would recommend this class to anyone that wants to learn how to handle a knife safely in the kitchen; learn a few tricks; or speed up their prep work. Nothing fancy. Just the basics which is more than most people have under their belt!

Paul was extremely knowledgeable, clear and concise. Encouraging and able to offer advice and adjustments with kindness. The venue was perfectly set out and functional. We were provided everything we needed. Paul took the time to explain and allow opportunity to practice. I feel more confident in my knife skills with new techniques to hone.

Great teacher - professional and friendly. Small class size, great for picking up some key skills.

Brendan Helsham Jun 2022


Paul was fantastic, he explained things clearly and concisely. It was clear that he was an expert in what he was teaching us and was able to also pass on many other nuggets of information as part of his instruction.
Also, it was nice to just dive right in and not waste time going around the room introducing ourselves like so many of these types of courses persist with; the reality is that the other attendees couldn't care less why I'm there and what I want to get out of the course

Rebecca Skill May 2022


Great skills from the chef! Highly recommended hour and a half and leave with a salad.

Instructor provided clear and helpful lessons that have helped set a strong foundation to refine through practice

John Warburton Feb 2021


Wish I’d done this workshop 40 years ago. The techniques, tips and tricks are invaluable for any home cook, as is the information about knife safety, selection and maintenance. As one of the other participants said, they should teach this stuff at school!
