Knife Skills and Cooking Class at Faraday’s Kitchen Store

By October 21, 2019Education, Events

Faraday’s Kitchen Store hosted Austin Food Bloggers Alliance for a Wüsthof Hands-on Knife Skills and Cooking Class. Keep reading for all the details about this fun educational event!

We were very excited to visit Faraday’s Kitchen Store for a knife skills and cooking class! Wüsthof is a German knife-maker known worldwide, and many of our members use Wüsthof knives in their kitchens because of their long-standing quality. During the class, we were able to try out different Wüsthof knives to find the one that best fits our style and needs.

Chef Scarleth Aguilar was on hand to help us improve our knife skills. We learned proper knife handling, maintenance, and using. She taught us a delicious menu of dishes! We enjoyed an arugula salad with edible flowers, baked stuffed tomatoes, and grilled halibut with sun-dried tomato pesto and saffron rice.

One of the best parts of this event? We got to pick our favorite Wüsthof knife to take home with us! Our members were thrilled and grateful to add a quality knife to their kitchens. You know us foodies will put them to good use!

I am still smiling about the fantastic #CutItUpAtFaradays event a couple weekends ago at @faradayskitchenstore ! Faraday’s and @wusthof partnered up to put together an AMAZING afternoon of learning, eating, and fun for a group of us @atxfoodblogs bloggers. They really pulled out the stops and put on an awesome event for us!
This complimentary event included a chance to try out a number of Wusthof knives and to take one home for our very own! I selected a Wusthof Classic 7” Santoku – in part because I already have two outstanding Wusthof chef’s knives. I’ve owned both of the chef’s knives for over 20 years and they have served me so well; I cannot rave about this brand enough. And I was THRILLED to discover the Santoku, which is ideal for slicing things super thin because of its thinner blade and hollow edge, which helps prevent the food from sticking to the blade. In fact, I was so excited about the knife that I’ve already purchased a second one as a gift for a great friend for their birthday! 🔪 In addition to a really helpful informational & practice session in which we learned about properly holding, using, and maintaining our knives, we were also treated to a cooking class by @cookingatx. She made us the most gorgeous and delicious feast, featuring an arugula & edible flower salad; baked stuffed tomatoes; and grilled halibut with sun-dried tomato pesto and saffron rice. Fantastic! 🔪 If you haven’t been to Faraday’s, it’s most definitely worth the trip out to Bee Cave (and if you already live in Bee Cave, LUCKY YOU!) This lovely, locally-owned business carries a wonderful selection of cookware, bakeware, kitchen gadgets and grills, and also offers fantastic cooking classes. You can bet that I’ll be out there again for another cooking class and a shop around the store very soon! Thank you so much, Faraday’s and Wusthof for the fun and memorable experience!
