Have you heard of coppa or pork brisket? Bring your whole hog questions and see pig butchery techniques from our team of expert butchers! In this nose-to-tail butchery demo, we'll review anatomy and cooking tips; learn how to break down, debone and skin properly; and discuss sourcing pork sustainably in today's food system. Get to know our partner JD Farms, where our non-GMO, pasture-raised pork comes from. Learn where your favorites cuts sit on the animal, and discover pieces you never knew existed. You'll come away with a richer understanding of whole animal butchery, and feel a closer connection to your food. This is a unique, interactive experience for a fun night with friends, dates, and more!
As pork is a large and complex animal, this class does not involve hands-on cutting, and is demo-only. Light bites will be provided so you may sample our pork, and all participants will receive raw meat to bring home for future culinary practice. If you are interested in a hands-on workshop, please check out our Sausage 101, Poultry 101, and Pork 201 courses.
This class takes place at multiple locations (see dates for each location below). All attendees will receive an email one week prior to class with additional information.
