Come learn the art of preparing French, Spanish, and Italian-style links, among many other varieties, with Mary Kay Gehring, former owner of Viande Meats (now Chop butchery). Students will learn how to select the right meat and trimmings from the appropriate muscle groups, and how to grind, flavor and stuff their sausage of choice. At the end of this hands-on class, students will go home with more than enough links for their frying pans and freezers, plus recipes.

Join Seattle Meat Collective Founder an Seattle Culinary Institute chef Instructor Sarah Wong for a two-day, hands-on butchery, charcuterie, and cookery workshop. We’ll spend the first day breaking down three sides of local pasture-raised hogs into primal and subprimal cuts. On the second day, Sarah will show you how to transform the various cuts of pork into delicious meals. You’ll get an introduction to the craft of charcuterie, as you make sausage, paté, porchetta and bacon. You’ll feast on ribs, loin racks and tenderloins, and still have plenty of meat left over to take home. Each student will get hands-on experience and instruction, leaving with the basic skills needed to start experimenting with home butchery

An increasing number of local farmers and butchers are raising and selling rabbits these days. Why not learn how to bring them into the kitchen! Sarah Wong, French-trained butcher and co-founder of the Seattle Meat Collective, will teach you how to source local, sustainably raised rabbits, as you practice butchering your very own rabbit. We’ll then use our freshly butchered rabbits to learn ways to cure and preserve your own rabbit at home. We’ll feast on a lunch of saucisse de toulouse; pâté grandmère; and black pepper rabbit rillettes with a rhubarb mostarda.
