Knife Care and Skills

Join Chef Patrick Higgins at Aurora Cooks—the Inns of Aurora’s stunning new demonstration kitchen—for a relaxed and educational experience. Gather around the island as though you’re at a chef’s home kitchen and enjoy learning his secrets and tips.

Explore the differences between Japanese and European knives while you come to appreciate various styles and their specific purpose. See how to properly hold and use these culinary tools as well as observe knives being sharpened using two methods.

BONUS: bring one of your own knives to be sharpened by Chef Patrick. Please note: sharpening may cause minor scratches on the blade of your knife. No sharpening will be offered for pure stainless steel knives.

Please register in advance. Doors open and check-in begins 10 minutes prior to start time. Classes begin promptly.

Round out your visit with dinner at 1833 Kitchen and Bar. Reservations strongly encouraged.
