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!

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.

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

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