THE CONTEST IS CLOSED

ENTER TO WIN A $50 CREDIT TO CENTRAL MARKET COOKING SCHOOL
TOWARD THE CLASS OF YOUR CHOICE

Episcopal priest and author, Robert Farrar Capon is credited with the following quote:

At the root of many a woman’s failure to become a great cook lies her failure to develop a workmanlike regard for knives.

Excuse me, padre, but have you met Cindy Haenel?

Obviously not.

Cindy is a chef instructor at Central Market Cooking School in Austin, and she definitely knows her way around a cutting edge.

In fact, the knife skills classes she teaches at the school always have a waiting list. Always.

As more of us spend time in the kitchen honing our culinary skills, we also recognize the need to hone our cutlery skills. And that’s why Cindy’s class is so popular with home cooking enthusiasts.

Cindy teaches attendees the difference between honing and sharpening and how to do both, what knives every home cook should have, and how to use them in the safest manner possible.

You wouldn’t think someone as fun (dare I call her a “cut up?”) and friendly would have such amazingly awesome ninja knife skills–but boy howdy does she.

After one of her classes, you’ll be slicing and dicing with the best of them.

So join me in the Central Market Cooking School kitchen where under Cindy Haenel’s expert guidance, we’ll sharpen our knife skills.

  1. I appreciate being able to create tasty, nourishing, simple dishes that feed both body and soul.

  2. I really want to learn how to properly sharpen my knives. Thank you for the conversation and the giveaway!

  3. Entertaining in our home is always more fun when friends and family gather in the kitchen to participate in the preparing before the feasting!

  4. Cooking at home allows me to vary the ingredients to accommodate the various dietary preferences of my daughters. For Christmas afternoon, I’ll make tortilla soup and each person can choose ingredients to add to the basic recipe to follow a vegetarian, vegan, or omnivore diet.

  5. I appreciate cooking at home stuff that I can share with my fellow foodies!

  6. I enjoy cooking at home and am always looking to improve my skills in the food preparation and presentation areas.

  7. First, I love your radio show! Yet another reason to be proud of Austin. Great stuff. What I love most about cooking at home? Knowing exactly what is (and is not) in our food and taking the time to connect with it before sitting down to eat. Even better, when preparing food from our farm share (we are CSA members at Green Gate Farms in east Austin), we know exactly where it came from, have a personal relationship with those who worked so hard to grow it and the land it came from. What’s more, in these busy times and with busy lives, it is time together- to get inspired, be creative or just throw something together. And… no traffic! ;)

  8. I especially appreciate cooking at home because I try to eat healthy foods; and when I prepare them at home, I know the types and amounts of fats, sugar, sodium, etc. I have always liked cooking at home because cooking is a satisfying form of creativity, and I enjoy trying different recipes & ingredients and experimenting with ethnic foods.
