Well, oddly enough I had already seen all of these lessons previously on Youtube about a year ago without realizing they had ripped them off of here. That being said, these videos have inspired some wonderful new perspectives on my cooking and revisiting these lessons again has shown me the parts of my food journey that need improvement.

I learned so much from each class! Not only technique, but great concepts. Thank you

Season 1 was greatly enjoyable though I thought it was a bit too basic. However, I more enjoyed and was fulfilled with Season 2 lessons.

This class provided not only many helpful instructions, but was vastly inspirational. Chef Ramsey's passion, his love of cooking, and drive to be the best is to be admired and respected.

This was a great lesson! I tried implementing the techniques the day after watching and my skills immediately improved. Looking forward to practicing and getting better.

Absolutely love this episode! It seems so simple to understand knife sharpening, and also chopping shallots, once you watch him do it. What an eye-opener!

A fellow student

This lesson alone is worth the entire year's subscription. My knife skills are one of the things that I find the most lacking in my own cooking and now I have a perfect way to practice!


Gordon Ramsey's classes are so packed with information. I find myself watching this knife skills class over and over again, picking up a little more each time.

He showed us the very basic of preparation process in rational way that I think everybody has something to take away. I found that I haven't been making the most of my knives.

Carolina E.

Does anyone has a recommendation on a medium-cost brand of knives that would recommend me?

All of the Master Classes I watch people just talk and talk but Gordon literally talks and demonstrates. Now I can learn with my eyes how to cook all of his AMAZING dishes 🍽.

I was happy to show and prove my husband that poultry knife is being used for multiple purposes and not only for cutting poultry :)))))) Halleluja , now I can use it for pealing hard vegetables or cut a mango in half )))

When you were slicing the shallot, which of the Henckles knives did you use?
