Illinois Charcuterie Intensive

350.00

Oct 5 & 6

In this 2-day intensive, learn to confidently cure meats via salting, dehydration, smoking, and fermentation. We will begin with a half hog, and spend two days turning every scrap of it into charcuterie, from fresh sausages to smoked hams, pates and hard salamis. In addition to learning salumi craft, you'll engage with me and your classmates about topics of sustainable farming, mindful slaughter, artisan butchery, and inspired cookery. You'll get to taste your creations at a culminating class feast, and you'll get to take projects home to finish on your own. Best of all, you'll join a growing cohort of ethical meat practitioners in touch via social media, direct email, and community gatherings. 

Cost: $350/person includes copies of The Ethical Meat Handbook and Pure Charcuterie.

Location: Gage Farms. Details provided to confirmed attendees.
