In this class
This hands-on class will teach you all you need to know about knife sharpening and how to look after your blades, how to hold them, what each ones are used for and how to use them effectively to give the desired results. Students will learn how to chop, slice, puree, julienne, dice, chiffonad and brunoise your ingredients, adding substance to your culinary repertoire.
Now you can
All students will be able to eat all their delicious creations after they have been made.
Did you know that a sharp knife actually causes fewer injuries than a blunt knife? The reason you cut yourself less with a sharp knife is because it takes less force to cut through anything. Cutting becomes much harder with a blunt knife, and therefore more likely to slip around and cause an accident. Our advice is to choose the right tool for the job and use it the right way.

The Avenue Cookery School, Wandsworth
3 Enterprise Way
The Avenue Cookery School is a family-run leaning business based in Wandsworth in South West London. The owner and head chef Diana began her career as a chalet chef before discovering her entrepreneurial side and founding a number of specialist food ventures. Infamously, Diana taught at The Grange Cookery School in Somerset for 7 years before starting The Avenue, where she has been ever since.
Diana is supported by her son Richard and daughter Sophie.
The food at The Avenue can be considered classic chic but full of fun twists and turns (ranging from macaroon masterclasses to gluten free baking to simple supper classes). All the classes are taught in the school's beautiful kitchen facilities in a relaxed environment.
Any class can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase. See cancellation policy.
