Lauren B.Let's Go Whole Hog: Butchery Basics
My husband & I had a wonderful time learning the Italian method of hog butchery. The shop was perfect, the kitchen & facilities super clean, and the instructors more than willing to share their knowledge.
Provided you don't mind lame dad jokes you'll love learning from our head salumiere Mark Sanfilippo. Trained under the Batali/Silverton powerhouse at L.A.'s Pizzeria Mozza this man knows his way around a kitchen as well as he knows his way around a hog. He's been creating, according to Forbes, the "best salami in the country" for the past six years at his humble South City salumeria, Salume Beddu. Let him teach you and certainly let him feed you.
