We run 2 types of class: 1) classes designed to give you an in-depth understanding of one animal; and 2) classes that will teach you a range of practical skills with different animals. Both types of class end with a convivial sharing-style meal in our next door restaurant.
Uniquely our classes are led by chef-butchers. They’ll teach you the art of butchery, share their detailed knowledge of different cuts, and share their secrets on how best to prepare and cook them.
Class size: up to 8 pupils
Class start time: 6.30pm
Class duration: 2 hours (followed by a meal)
1) BEEF or LAMB or PORK BUTCHERY CLASSES
Learn the art of butchery and meat preparation for one particular animal, and then enjoy our exceptional quality meat at a meal cooked by our chefs.
You’ll be greeted by a whole lamb, a whole pig, or a side of beef (depending on your choice of class) along with a welcome drink and snack.
In the first half of the class, you’ll learn about different breeds, the species you're working with, how different rearing methods influence character and flavour, and how to assess quality when buying meat. Our butchers will show you where each cut sits in the animal, and demonstrate how the animal is broken down into its primal cuts. The second half of the class is more hands-on, and you’ll get stuck into cutting, de-boning, and tying to prepare the different cuts.
The class ends with a convivial sharing-style meal in our next door restaurant, based around the meat that you have worked on. As a parting gift you'll be given a selection of cuts to take home.
2) BUTCHERY SKILLS CLASSES
Learn a range of butchery and meat preparation techniques for different animals, to improve your skills as a home cook. Then enjoy our exceptional quality meat at a meal cooked by our chefs.
You’ll be greeted with a welcome drink, snack, and a short introduction to butchery, breeds, and how to assess quality when buying meat.
You’ll then jump straight into a hands-on and highly practical class. We’ll teach you how to: sharpen a knife; joint a chicken; stuff and roll chicken legs; prepare a stock; French-trim a rack of lamb; and how to bone, roll, stuff and tie a show-stopping Porchetta. You’ll take home the cuts that you’ve worked on, along with guidance and recipes on how to cook them at home.
The class ends with a convivial sharing-style meal in our next door restaurant,
