    Essential Knife Skills Class

    Are you holding your knife correctly? Scared of a sharp knife in the kitchen? Want to improve your efficiency and consistency when preparing food? This class is right for you.

    Learn all the basic knife skills, from how to cut an onion properly, to chiffonade or jullienne in this approx. 2 hour class! Each person will be making their own Imam Bayildi and a delicious fennel and herb salad to enjoy at the end of the class, and the basics of how to use a knife correctly and look after it.

    SPACES ARE LIMITED! There is only space for 5 people, however if demand is high, another class can be arranged. Look out for the ticket link release on the event page to secure your place.

    After having worked in a kitchenware shop for five years, and attending and assiting cooking classes myself, I have noticed the large amount of even experienced home cooks who lack some basic knife skills that can really speed up, and more importantly, make their cooking safer.

    Make sure to let Charlie know of any dietary requirements before the class.

    UH Jsoc Wecomes Survivor from the Holocaust Educational Trust

    On 24 February 2020, students and local community from Hertfordshire and region will hear testimony from Holocaust survivor, Harry Spiro, as part of a visit organised by the Holocaust Educational Trust (HET).

    The testimony will be followed by a question and answer session to enable students to better understand the nature of the Holocaust and to explore its lessons in more depth. The visit is part of the Holocaust Educational Trust’s extensive all year round Outreach Programme, which is available to schools across the UK.

    It is a privilege for us to welcome Harry Spiro BEM to our school and his testimony will remain a powerful reminder of the horrors so many experienced. We are grateful to the Holocaust Educational Trust for co-ordinating the visit and we hope that by hearing Harry’s testimony, it will encourage our students to learn from the lessons of the Holocaust and make a positive difference in their own lives.

    Karen Pollock MBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust added:

    “The Holocaust Educational Trust educates and engages students from across the UK, from all communities about the Holocaust and there can be no better way than through the first-hand testimony of a survivor. Harry’s story is one of tremendous courage during horrific circumstances and by hearing his testimony, students will have the opportunity to learn where prejudice and racism can ultimately lead.

    “At the Trust, we impart the history of the Holocaust to young people, to ensure that we honour the memory of those whose lives were lost and take forward the lessons taught by those who survived.”
