MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2013 - 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Chef Derrick Beverly, CEC, ACE, CDM
I'm giving away two spots for this upcoming leisure class at the Louisiana Culinary Institute to one lucky winner. You and a guest will be able to attend the class on Monday, November 4th from 5:30 to 8 PM. Chef Derrick Beverly will show you how to use and feel comfortable with your kitchen knives. He will show you how to properly cut vegetables, meats, and fish. He will also teach you basic cooking techniques that you can use in your own kitchen. Plus, you can bring your kitchen knives and get them sharpened (limit 3 per person)! At a minimum, a chef's knife is required for this class but you might as well bring your whole set or at least three that you'd like to get sharpened. The two tickets to this class are a $250 value that I'll be giving away to one lucky reader!
To win, leave a comment below telling me how you'd like to improve your knife skills. It could be learning how to properly hold a knife, learning when to use each kind of knife, or getting pro tips on how to chop and onion or dice a bell pepper. For an extra chance to win, send a tweet to @biteandbooze and @LAculinary with the link to this post in it or mention Bite and Booze and the Louisiana Culinary Institute on Facebook when sharing the link to this post!
You have until the end of the day on Wednesday to enter and I'll be informing the winner of their free leisure classes on Thursday!
Also, gift certificates for LCI leisure classes are available and are perfect for holiday gifts. If you know anyone interested in cooking or entertaining, they'll love an LCI leisure class!
