Knife Sharpening Services
Knives are one of the most important tools in a kitchen, arguably second only to the stove. Choosing the right type of knife and the right brand for you is crucial. If you need help buying your first knife, increasing your collection or getting some tips on how to care for and get the most from your knives, visit our Prahran store and speak to one of our experts.
On every 1st and 3rd Tuesday each month, The Essential Ingredient Prahran also offers a knife sharpening service by our expert sharpener – bring your knives in before 3.30pm and they’ll be ready for collection after 12pm the day after.
Kitchen Hire-Event Space
Located on the mezzanine level, the cooking school overlooks The Essential Ingredient retail space. For those interested in food and the culinary arts the ambience is inspiring, while for those yet to experience the thrill of the kitchen it is definitely motivating.
Whether it’s a hands-on workshop, chef’s table demonstration with lunch or dinner, conversational session, or format created especially for you, we will work with you to design an experience you and your guests will be talking about for years to come.
