What you'll learn in this butchery class:

For the lover of all things pork! In Whole Hog Butchery our butchers will break down a whole hog and describe the differences in butchering techniques for fresh cuts compared to cuts and muscles commonly used in charcuterie and salumi.

Throughout the class we'll explain the various age old techniques used in making charcuterie and preserving meats including but not limited to:

  • Salting
  • Brining
  • Dry-curing
  • Fermenting
  • Smoking

Participants will be invited to get their hands salty, helping prepare items in different cures. There will also be a thorough tasting spread to allow you to compare the various techniques explained during the class.

Please wear a sweater; classes take place in our cutting room which is usually at about 60 degrees.

Wasn't as hands-on as I had imagined but it was fun handling body parts as they were hacked off.

Would have liked more hands-on butchery - informative but more of a demonstration rather than a butchery class.
