Urban Greens Member Made Demo: Knife Skills


Urban Greens Food Co-op members Chef Norbert Klotz and Chef Deb Fernandez of My Chef Lara will guide participants in finding the correct grip and proper positioning for the best cuts, and explain fundamental cuts to increase speed and ensure consistency. Participants will learn how to cut onions and other vegetables most effectively, as well as precise cuts such as julienne and brunoise.

Participants are asked to bring a 6”, 8” or 10” chef knife if they have one, otherwise one will be provided.

*Class size is limited to 10 and registration is required.

Urban Greens Member Made Demos are held in members’ homes or community spaces. The demos aim to share skills from Urban Greens members to Rhode Islanders. The Member Made Demos reflect the cooperative spirit driving Urban Greens to open a community-owned grocery store. Open to everyone, this member-led workshop hopes to inspire healthy, affordable, DIY food options in a fun, cooperative atmosphere. Past Member Made Food Demos have explored how to make yogurt, granola, sauerkraut, kale chips, and more.

Urban Greens Food Co-op is a consumer-owned cooperative working to open a full-scale retail grocery store in Providence, RI. The store will provide and promote healthy, affordable, sustainably sourced, and local food options. Urban Greens Food Co-op won’t be just another grocery store! It will be a community directed market that will bring fresh, healthy and locally produced foods of the highest quality to our city and state.
