September

The Whole Pig with Matthew Evans and James Mele: A two-day hands on pork workshop. Sat 4-Sun 5 September 2021

Saturday September 4 - Sunday September 5

The transformation of pork is miraculous. Sweet fresh leg meat can become fragrant prosciutto given salt and time. Minced shoulder cures into mouthwatering salami. Middles can become luscious smoky bacon, delicately spiced pancetta, or complex tasting lonzo.

Join us on a two day workshop exploring the art and alchemy of pork butchery.
PRICE: $750
