Lamb Butchering MASTERCLASS

Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/zssucRsr)


Get serious about your butchering skills and learn from the MASTER craftsman - John Trigg.

In this class you'll have 4 hours to break down an entire lamb under John's expert guidance.

John will take you through each cut as you learn how to plan and execute the entire process.

This is a great opportunity to learn about some lesser known cuts and how to prepare them; and why we approach each cut differently.

Bring your favourite knives and make sure they're sharp!

We recommend that you do our knife sharpening class even if you are confident with handling knives.  You should have a basic level of knife handling skills in doing this class - the knife sharpening class will give you that.

We have partnered with the local supplier SUMMIT PARK TEXELS. 


Bring your eski to take home some of the best tasting lamb around!

Excellent introduction to lamb butchery. Great care is taken throughout. Your animal is processed locally a few days before the course under the instructor's supervision. The instructor has extensive hands-on knowledge and experience on the subject and makes every effort to ensure that you understand the process. Class size is limited to ensure that every participant follows and executes each step in the process. The instructor explains the whys and what's important to yield the best possible quality lamb portions. You can take home everything but the tail :-). It makes for a long but highly recommended afternoon.
