We have never seen anyone butcher like Francois Vecchio. The first time we saw him practicing his art, he was hard at work breaking down a pork shoulder at the Slow Meat Conference. If our memory serves us correctly, he seamed out every single muscle in the shoulder primal. Do you know how many tiny little muscles are in a shoulder primal? A lot. And Francois had a specific purpose for every single one of them. Studying with Francois is a rare opportunity, and we're excited that he's decided to come to Oregon to offer a workshop. Stoller Family Estate and former El Dorado Meat Collective owner Jon Gonzalez are putting it on. This will be a four-day, hands-on, detailed charcuterie and butchery workshop. It seems especially appropriate for chefs and meat retail types, but also for home enthusiasts. And it will be followed by an amazing dinner (which will be open to the public) featuring all the products made in class. Plus, all proceeds from the dinner and any other product sold in the winery's tasting room will go toward our sister nonprofit, the Good Meat Project too! Sign up now before it sells out.
