Cutting and Cooking Meat

June 24, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

| $225

In this 6 hour workshop, Sean Durnan (our resident star butcher) will cover basic kitchen butchery of chicken, lamb and beef  and Annemarie Ahearn (chef instructor) will demonstrate a range of fundamental culinary techniques necessary for meat cookery.


In the first three hour session, we will cover the following subjects:

Buying Meat: Knowing your butcher, understanding protein, basic anatomy

Chicken butchery (trussing, basic breakdown)

Meat Marinades

Searing and Braising Technique

Chicken Stock


Second three hour session:

Cutting steaks: the value of cooking on the bone

Boning a leg of lamb

Stuffing a roast

Compound butters

Grilling steaks correctly


This workshop will be a combination of demonstration and hands on cookery. Lunch will be served during a one hour break at noon and at three we will indulge in yet another protein packed offering. Don’t worry, the meals will be accompanied by a couple of big, beautiful salads for balance and a little something sweet to finish.
