    We learned fundamental knife skills as well as the parts of the knife and knife safety. We practiced slicing and dicing different vegetables and got to take the produce we cut home. I thought the class was really useful for a beginner like me. Sarah was a great teacher and I got plenty of good feedback. Snacks (hummus and pita) were also provided for us to snack on during class.

    Knowledgeable and personable teacher. Just right class size. Bright, clean, inviting space. It was a little long for a weeknight outing - or maybe I'm just getting old! I left with enough sliced fresh produce to cover the amount of the class. A steal!

    My first class at Whole Foods Lincoln Park and it did not disappoint! Sarah is an excellent instructor, teaching the class how to use a knife properly and safely. Do not hesitate to take this class and plan to be there the whole 2 1/2 hours chopping away.

    I cook at home a lot and use a knife all the time so I wasn't sure what to expect out of this class but I loved it! The teacher was upbeat, thorough, and easy to follow. I learned how to hold a knife correctly which actually alleviated some of the pain from my carpal tunnel! Also, fun new ways to cut a pepper and get even onion pieces. I would definitely take another class here with this instructor!

    I feel that if you leave the class learning one new thing, it was completely worth it. Turns out I wasn't holding the knife or slicing the correct way. Now I know. They fed you some snacks while working though the class so you were well taken care of. My only surprise was that I thought the class was 2 hours, as advertised on Dabble, but when I got there learned it was actually 2.5 hours.
