Knife Skills - The Roux Way


Handle a knife with confidence. Slice, dice, peel and chop fruit, vegetables and herbs swiftly and efficiently. Designed by Michel Roux Jr, in association with Global Knives, this course shows you the right way to choose, use, sharpen and store a knife.

;

Sharpen your skills

Being a good cook involves many skills but for Michel Roux Jr learning how to use a knife properly is essential. Well-honed knife skills reduce time and waste in the kitchen and produce more attractive dishes with improved texture and style.

Short cuts in your kitchen

Learn the essential techniques to make short work of fruit and veg in this half-day introductory course. Get to grips with rolling, chopping, brunoise and julienne. Put your newfound skills to work mastering mirepoix and making a tomato salsa and herb and cheese scones to take home. Taught by our in-house Roux chef, your class begins with a welcome introduction and refreshments and concludes with a glass of wine and a light lunch in our dining room or a cream tea with Prosecco.
  • Ciana's review of Knife Skills-the Roux Way " Arriving at the Michel Roux Jr Cookery School at Cactus Kitchens, in Clapham, feels like the ultimate VIP experience, from the friendly staff to the beautiful school! I have learnt essential knife skills that I will continue to practice and will improve my cooking for the rest of my life! "
  • Susanne's review of Knife Skills-the Roux Way " Thank you very much to you all, especially Jess Mills, for a fantastic knife skills experience on Friday afternoon. The course was conducted in an inspiring way. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I will try to remember all the little tips and tricks which were passed on. The little booklet is a great aide-mémoire. "
  • Ken's review of Knife Skills - The Roux Way " Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed the knife skills course. The delivery of the course was mindful of the fact that we were all enthusiastic amateurs, but was very thorough and informative. As always when you visit the kitchen, we all left with a bag full of goodies and happy memories. "
  • Emma's review of Knife Skills - The Roux Way " I absolutely loved the knife skills course. I don’t think I’ve ever completed a workshop/training course where I immediately took the skills from it and began using it in everyday life like we have since the course. It has genuinely changed the way we prepare vegetables in the kitchen completely. I now love spotting all the chefs using the exact same techniques on TV. "
