Butchery Workshop: Break Down a Pig with Dave the Butcher
NOTE: tickets are now available!
Dave the Butcher is back and he's bringing half a pig, including the head! In this first-ever UKSF pig butchery class, Dave will start off with a short discussion about pork butchery and its different cuts. He'll also demystify questions such as why pork butt doesn't come from where you'd expect...
The class will then dive right in to break down the pig together. Students will take home a boning knife, the meat they butcher, and various suggestions for preparing their specific cuts.
This class will be limited to 16 people to ensure that everyone receives personalized instruction. Check out photos from past butchery workshops with UKSF and Dave the Butcher here.
DATE: Tuesday, September 20
TIME: 5:30 - 7:30
*Sliding scale pricing available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
