A hands-on cooking class culminating in dinner served with wine and beer. Knives will be provided for student use.
We may not answer what came first, the chicken or the egg, but we will answer a lot of your chicken related questions! Students will work in pairs to butcher a whole chicken. With Justin's guidance, you'll learn how to look for signs of freshness as well as proper handling and sanitation practices. After butchering whole chickens, students will use various cooking techniques in the kitchen, and how to apply them to the different cuts of meat. You'll celebrate your triumph with a dinner together at our table!
