PORK DISPLAY CASE at Le FRENCH BUTCHER: 6015 W. THIRD STREET - LA - 90036

OUR PORK

Our pork comes from DG LANGLEY FARMS in Northern California and is 100% natural and sustainably raised. We looked for many months to find pork that would be the right fat ratio for French Charcuterie (which is actually more lean than most Americans suspect) and moist enough for center cuts and chops. DG Langley Pork is the perfect balance. AND...it is DELICIOUS! Once you try it, we think you will agree!

HOW TO DRESS:

Very casual! Just a T-shirt and shorts or slacks as you will be wearing a smock as well. And comfortable shoes as you’ll be standing for most of the event. Dress to peel as the temperature in the kitchen can vary.

WHAT TO BRING:

Everything you need will be provided. But if you have a favorite boning or paring knife from your kitchen that you feel comfortable with, feel free to bring it. Come eager to learn, share, make new friends and have fun—because this is a super fun class and let’s face it, learning how to cut a half-hog by a French Master Butcher right here in L.A. is a an amazing opportunity for any serious foodie!

ARRIVE A FEW MINUTES EARLY:

Please arrive early to “suit-up.” This is our store's private kitchen, County Health Approved, so we will ask you to wear a smock and apron--just as if you were working in our butchery!
