Knife Skills: Staying Sharp in the Kitchen 

Knife skills are an indispensable part of cooking. Join me, Chef Addie Gundry, and learn about the most common knives, cutting techniques, and how to safely use every knife in your kitchen.


Knife Skills

Dear Sharp Chef,

So many knives! Do you ever feel lost wondering if you need a serrated knife or a chef’s knife? A paring knife or a boning knife? Do you worry about cutting your finger when you’re chopping vegetables? In this essential class, I’ll share with you the ins and outs of selecting the right knife for the job, how to hold a knife safely, cutting techniques, and, of course, a few recipes to practice your knife skills!

We’ll go over the most common skills you need in the kitchen. Learn how to safely julienne peppers, chop herbs, dice onions, core tomatoes, slice lemon and lime wedges, peel a lemon for snazzy cocktails, and so much more. We’ll also go over the one thing that’s vitally important in knife safety: a few wet paper towels. It’s true, and I’ll tell you why in this class.

Knife skills are at the core of creating beautiful meals, getting the most out of your meats and vegetables, and working safely. I’ll share everything you need to feel comfortable and confident with any knife—all in the RecipeLion Cooking Club’s Knife Skills streaming-video cooking class with me, Chef Addie Gundry!

Knife Skills

Our first recipe, Stuffed Peppers, may not seem like the kind of recipe you would need many knife skills for, but each ingredient requires chopping and it’s a great dish to get you using knives in different ways. While your beef is cooking, use a chef’s knife to dice an onion. Add that to the beef, along with diced tomatoes, corn, and stuffing mixture. While that cooks, chop your cilantro and add it to the pan. (Don’t worry! I’ll show you an easy way to chop the herbs.)

Fill your peppers with stuffing, top with Parmesan cheese, and bake them at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. What a show stopper these are! These are a great way to show off your culinary skills with a delicious dish to serve your guests.

To learn all the skills you need to safely handle knives in the kitchen, watch Knife Skills, right now—one of many classes in the RecipeLion Cooking Club’s Library.

Along with these necessary Knife Skills, this class includes a total of four recipes, a bonus section on fruit-cutting techniques, and a downloadable infographic with common knives and what to use them for. You’ll get all of this, as well as the detailed instructions and tips you need to handle a knife just like a professional. In addition to the Stuffed Pepper recipe, you’ll get:

  • Corn and Tomato Salad—This salad is about as fresh as you can get. Pepper slices, tomatoes, chopped shallots, corn, and a creamy olive oil and vinegar dressing is nothing short of delightful. It may look like a summer salad, but it’s perfect all year ‘round.
  • Julienned Vegetable Salad—I’ll show you how to julienne peppers, make carrot and zucchini matchsticks, slice celery, and dress them all up for a flavorful and unique salad.

And to complete your Knife Skills class, you’ll get another recipe, instructions and tips on cutting fruits and citrus, and an additional knife directory:

  • Cutting Citrus— Find out how to cut lemons and limes into wedges, wheels, and garnishes for dishes or drinks. The bonus of all this cutting is that you have plenty of fresh lemon and lime juice for a lemonade, limeade, or your favorite cocktail.
  • Salmon Fish Fillets—Learn how to easily remove the skin from a salmon fillet, then make a delicious poached salmon with lemon, white wine vinegar, and olive oil. Serve with browned butter and parsley for a delicious, moist fillet.
  • Types of Knives— This class also includes a bonus guide describing the most common knives you may need in your kitchen, as well as what each knife is designed for, what different knife edges do best, and eight common cutting techniques.

Along with your video class, you’ll get the accompanying digital Cookbook, all the class’s recipes and instructions in written form, full-color pictures of each dish, and the infographic of different types of knives—read it all on any device or print it out for easy use in your own kitchen.
