What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon in spring than learning to butcher a pig and making fresh sausage? Join Ethan Bisanga of feastworks for this one day class where you will learn the primal cuts of the pig and how to divide them into standard market and restaurant cuts. Both demonstration and hands-on methods are used to butcher the side of pork into steaks, roasts, ribs and loin. The remaining meat will be ground with herbs and seasoning and stuffed into casings – ready for the BBQ. Each participant will take home a selection of the meats and sausages as well as recipes.
