You’ll begin by learning all about our meat and what to look for when buying. The class will also cover the carrying, cutting and preparing your joints. Then it’s down to butchery – the class will mainly focus on the hefty centre part where the sirloin, rump, forerib and fillet are found. You will finish by preparing a côte de boeuf joint to take home.
Lamb is probably the most seasonal meat we sell. The butchers will break down a whole carcass in front of the class, explaining the cuts and how to cook them as they go – then make you put it back together again. Once you’ve finished with the lamb jigsaw, you’ll be shown how to bone out and roll your own shoulder of lamb to take away.
This is probably the most hands on, our butchers will tell you what exactly goes into a good sausage. you will prepare the meat to go into the mincer and then choose your own flavour for the sausages, before having a lot of fun handling the powerful sausage filler. If you manage that, then you’ll go on to learn how to link your bangers like a pro, ready to take home.
