BUTCHERY AND BARBECUE


Combine smoke, fire and pigs and a quasi-magical alchemy ensues. Add in an even better awareness and understanding of the pig - and how it is prepared - and it will take your porky barbecues to another level.

The formula for this relaxed, fun class is simple: our butcher Matt breaks down half a pig with us, then we prepare and cook it. There is plenty of opportunity for discussion and to learn about butchery and quality meat from Matt, and about barbecue from our tutor.
