15 August 2017 • Sausage Making Master Class - West Melbourne

The course was very casual and enjoyable, we made two types of sausages from scratch. Each step was explained well with little useful tips provided as you went, so note taking was essential. Everyone had a turn at each step and we got to eat some our produce during a mid-course break. Personal hygiene was strongly emphasised with regular visits to the sinks to wash our hands between steps. At $50 per head it is good value as you even come away with three sausages each.

What a great way to see how simple a great banger can be made. A very enjoyable evening with my little helper capped off with a BBQ snag of our own making. A great class for father and daughter bonding we lived it and will be back for the salami making class asap

The class was great! We got hands on lessons in sausage making, including everything from breaking down the cuts of meat and grinding it down, to stuffing and tying up our snags. All with a glass of wine! A very enjoyable experience for anyone who has ever wanted to try making their own sausages. I'll be looking out for any other classes Artisans Bottega run in the future.
