Sharpen Your Knife Skills

As anyone who has taken a cooking class knows, there is a definite art to all of that chopping, cubing, dicing and julienning. It sounds basic, but there's a lot to learn about how best to use, hold, sharpen, hone, clean and store your kitchen knives. If you live in New York City, or are visiting, you can learn these skills from Brendan McDermott, a professional chef who has worked at famous restaurants such as Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill, Patria and Olive's.
