Pork Butchery Basics
Have you ever wondered how to make bacon and where it comes from? In this course the incredible versatility of the pig will be examined. The basics of pork butchery will be explored by trimming sub-primal cuts and processing them into products such as chops, roasts, sausages and of course, bacon. Each student will take home the products they produce both fully cooked and ready to eat or fresh and ready for the freezer to be cooked at a later date. A cooler large enough to transport products is required each week. NOTE: To ensure that safe food handling practices are maintained in our kitchens closed toed, non-slip shoes will be required. Pants must be either a black slack style or culinary pant. No jeans, work out pants, or yoga pants are permitted. Hats, Aprons, and Course Manual, will be provided during your first class.
