The Frugal Pig Course

Posted by .

  • Duration- 4 hours
  • Max- 10 persons
  • Cost- £120 per person

The Frugal Pig course has been designed to look at how to get the most from the pig and the more economical cuts of pork.  You will be welcomed with drinks and some meaty treats on arrival before watching the Artisan Butcher demonstrate his skills butchering a side of pork (half a pig).  During the demonstration you will learn about the history of the pig and all its many uses from the hand to the snout! Each cut will be described in detail with its many uses and tips and hints on how to cook them.  Along the way you will be taught how to use the butcher’s tools of the trade and the correct way in which to sharpen them.

Then it’s over to you! You will now get to grips on your own shoulder of pork breaking it down into what’s good for you chops, joints and steaks, whatever you would like.  The course will finish with some fantastic porky delights and a few glasses of wine or soft drinks (if you’re driving) and a chance to chat to the Artisan Butcher and your fellow course mates.

The next Frugal Pig course will take place on the 24th April 2016.  To book your place,  please contact us.
