From the organizers:
This course explains the “big eight” muscle groups used for charcuterie including guanciale, coppa, spalla, lonza, pancetta, lardo, prosciutto, and salumi.
During this interactive demonstration, a whole hog is broken down to explain the muscles that are used for each style of charcuterie. The course also includes a discussion of how curing is done through the use of a curing agent (salt, vegetable powder, nitrates, and nitrites) and time.
This class runs from 10 – 2 and includes a lunch of slow-roasted pork shoulder, along with sides and beverages. Participants will take home a pound of lardo and pancetta.
Registration is limited to 12 to maximize attendee participation.
