How to Use Your Blades of Glory (podcast)Aug 6th, 2016 | By Cecilia | Category: Featured Articles, podcast, the show
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?
Cindy Haenel is a kind of knife ninja; she understands these blades of glory and how to use them, and teaches others how to sharpen their skills.
As a chef instructor at Central Market Cooking School in Austin, she 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.
