Can’t find the perfect chef’s knife? Why not make your own, at this workshop by Florentine Kitchen Knives in Barcelona 5th – 7th of July.
The first-of-its-kind workshop is designed for people with no knife-making experience and who are interested in learning the basics of knife-making or exploring it as a hobby. It will offer the chance to make something both functional and beautiful which they can use daily for years to come.
The workshop is led by Florentine Kitchen Knives’s Tomer Botner and fellow knifemaker and friend Geoff Feder. Geoff, Knife Talk podcast host and man behind Feder Knives will be flying in from upstate New York to Florentine Kitchen Knives’ workshop and store space where both he and Botner will be offering 1-on-1 sessions for each workshop attendee.
The workshop is now sold out, but there is clearly a demand for learning knifemaking skills and FKK plans to hold more of them. They are also opening their doors to chefs and knife enthusiasts for a unique knife sharpening workshop. Beginners can learn the skill of knife sharpening on Japanese wet stones and the workshops will be run on a monthly basis.
“This is the first time we are going to do these workshops but hopefully there will be many in the future with Geoff and possibly with other makers,” says Botner. “The people attending the next 2 workshops are either clients of FKK or chefs and cooks from the city.”
“This type of craft is not something that you can teach a theoretical course on and go ahead and make a knife, it's something that you have to practice and find the way through your hands.”
Not only will attendees get to learn new invaluable skills but a gourmet meal is included giving everyone a chance to get to know each other as well as get a taste of the great things happening in Barcelona’s culinary scene.
