Tremendous food economies and access to amazing meat options open up when you have the skills to process your own. Our workshops are geared to take it post kill, through butchery, and to highly value added charcuterie such as sausage and dry cured items. Our philosophy at Food Workshop is that there's no 'one way' to do things - ever. We intend to have multiple voices share their thoughts and approach on any particular subject.
