Demonstration of breaking a whole pig followed by instruction and hands on butchering. You’ll take home the meat you cut and a head full of inspiration and knowledge.
This is for those who want to actually butcher a whole body. Each student will work with half a small weaner pig, breaking it down and learning how to properly bone, roll, tie, mince and stuff. You'll learn to make a traditional marinated porchetta, how to bone, stuff and tie a shoulder roast, how to dress a leg for roasting or curing and how to bone out the head.
After the class, you'll relax with a locally-brewed ale and barbecued samples. You'll leave with half a suckling pig prepared into a porchetta, stuffed shoulder and dressed leg - and an extra hock for soup.
