In France, whole carcass charcuterie is the standard way to make money, use all the meat, and celebrate the deliciousness of le Cochon. In this special workshop, we ignore the first four quarter primals and concentrate on the fifth. Kate Hill, cook, author, and teacher introduces you to a once forgotten French repertoire of classic charcuterie that celebrates the lowly cuts and bottom trim from trotters to tails to head. This is where value added products shine, from the lip-smacking paté de tête or headcheese, to paquets de pied, caul fat wrapped bundles of trotter meat, learn the curing and cooking techniques to transform the head and offal into delicious small bites of French pig love.
10:00-4:00 includes a lunch break
