Understanding butchery is a key to great cooking. Buying meat in primal cuts allows the home cook to spend less money and produce a broad range of dishes. In this class Chef Jason will offer a demonstration of basic butchery, the knives, the cuts, a guide to different animals and how to determine overall quality. Students will get hands on experience with both poultry and Middleground Farms raised pork.
This class is a combination of demonstration and hands-on. A family style lunch will be served using cuts created in class. This class is appropriate for both beginners and experienced cooks. You are welcome to bring your own knives, but as always, The Kitchen knives are available.
