David Evans starts the weekend off with a discussion of pasture-raised meat: its health benefits, environmental merits, and delicious flavor. Then the cooking begins: learn about the lesser-known cuts of beef and the best methods for preparing them, watch a professional butcher break down a goat, and taste chicken the way it’s meant to taste. Taylor and Toponia continue the meat fest, teaching you about the different parts of the pig and how they turn them into cured salumi and charcuterie. Discover how easy it is to make fresh sausage and pate. Over the two days you will learn how to select, butcher, season, and cook a variety of meats, discuss the curing of different salumi, and make fresh sausage and pate, all while dining on tasty meals and sipping delicious wines.
