Are the classes at Sur La Table any good?

Patrick | Jan 13, 2005 06:16 PM

My friend pointed out an upcoming "knife essentials" class at a local Sur La Table (San Jose, CA area) and it sounded intriguing. It is $55 though so I have a few questions:
1) Is it worth it?
2) How are other cooking classes at Sur La Table?
3) Are there other good cooking classes in the San Jose area that I could check out?

Thanks in advance!

Class description: How to use the cook's most important tool. Brush up on your basic knife skills, become more comfortable at the cutting board and practice fundamental methods for preparing vegetables like a professional. You will learn vegetable cuts, such as mince, dice, brunoise, batonnet, and julienne, as well as some advanced vegetable techniques. This class will include a mandoline demonstration. A snack will be served. Your class fee includes a coupon for one free knife sharpening at Sur La Table.
