Union SF Presents: The Classics: Makin' Bacon and Sausage 101
A special event just for member of Union SF's interest list...
Back by Popular Demand ...
Let us demystify the process of curing and smoking your own bacon. We will also demonstrate sausage blending, and provide some simple tricks that can transform a basic cut of pork into something to savor.
Led by Rick Abruzzo and organized by Rebecca Alon an Dario Barbone, this intimate workshop will first focus on the basic bacon-making technique of flavoring, curing, and smoking your own slab of pork belly. We've selected a savory dry cure recipe, and Rick will lead a demo and tasting of two bacon recipes.
Rick will base the second half the afternoon on sausage, blending several traditional recipes for your own sausage experiments, and showing you some useful stuffing tricks. Our pork is raised on from local, sustainable farms.
Tastings will include several smoked bacon recipes, and a threesome of unique sausage recipes, including a special variety with ginger and sage. We will be grilling the sausages fresh on-site.
All participants will receive copies of the recipes used in class, and a mini stash of your very own magic pink curing salt, the key ingredient in making your own bacon.
