COOKING CLASSES

PORK BUTCHERY 101- Saturday March 25 @ 10am

In this class, participants learn hands-on knife skills and butchery techniques from our Chef de Cuisine, Alex Leblanc. Throughout a nose-to-tail butchery demo of a pig from Wyndswept Farm in Limerick, Maine, we’ll review anatomy and cooking tips; learn how to break down, debone and skin properly; and discuss sourcing pasture-raised pork sustain-ably in today’s food system. Learn where your favorites cuts sit on the animal, and discover pieces you never knew existed. Nothing connects you closer to your food quite like this experience.

This is a hands-on workshop.  At the end of class we’ll cheers with a complimentary glass of bubbles, as well as devour delicious foods prepared in our kitchen.  A cut of meat will be given as a party favor to all participants.
