Knife Skills and More
So many of you have expressed an interest in studying knife skills with my friend Norman Weinstein, the master teacher, that I asked Norman to provide me with his current schedule. Many of his classes are sold out, but call the schools and ask about cancellations. There are always cancellations and the schools always keep waiting lists. Or, you can put your name on a list for Norman's next round of classes. Norman also teaches Chinese cooking (and some other subjects), for which their is considerable interest lately, too, so I've included his class schedule for that, too.
