Event Details

Everybody's Hungry and The Ventura Meat Company are excited to bring you The Perfect Blend: Ground Meats, Great Flavor, the next event in the First Cut educational series. 

Michael Buckley, owner and operator of The Ventura Meat Company, will be our main speaker for The Perfect Blend. He'll give us the inside track on ground meats and their versatility, starting with the common beef and wrapping up with some unique ideas that only the local butcher can supply.

What we'll cover:

  • Basic grind styles and the different varieties of cuts that can be used.
  • The characteristics achieved by using certain types of cuts in your grind.
  •  Fat content and why having the right percentage and style will make all the difference.
  • Stages of the grinding process and what makes each stage important.

For a hands-on component, we're going to get everyone in on the process, using an old fashioned hand grinder to demonstrate what it takes to get that perfect blend. You'll leave with skills that will take your chili to the next level and raise your burgers to a new tier of yum.

Hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be served.

Every attendee will go home with 1 1/2 pounds of fresh ground beef, a $13-14 value.


We hope to see you there!

Everybody's Hungry

- "Enjoying food and life by taking a bite and sharing a bite." -

Everybody's Hungry helps food and beverage companies spread their passion and products, shares that passion with the community through educational opportunities, media and events, and works to raise awareness about the hungry in our communities.

Everybody's Hungry launched in August of 2011, emerging from a simple thought of sharing the enthusiasm of food and dining through a basic blog. With a quick evolution, Everybody's Hungry has become a platform for giving back to members of the community who are hungry and in need with that same level of enthusiasm.
