A Unique Four-Day Workshop w/ Charcuterie Master Francois Vecchio!
We have never seen anyone butcher like Francois Vecchio. The first time we saw him practicing his art, he was hard sat 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.

But it's Vice after all, and it's a good article other than that.Read More >
