Im a college student who loves to cook. I was inspired by Hung Huynh from Top Chef and would LOVE to learn to chop with his speed and precision one day. The look on Tom Colicchio's face as he stood by and watched Hung break down chickens was priceless. In fact, im looking to take a knife skills class at the French Culinary Institute of New York...maybe even study at Le Cordon Bleu in France...okay me not as i probably wont have time while pursuing a career in medicine. But would it be more worth my while to invest in a few good quality knives instead and rely on videos and careful reading of The Zwilling J. A. Henckels Complete Book of Knife Skills? Or would you say that a knife skills class is worth it?
