The Whole Pig in a Day Class

with Award-Winning Chef Rob Green and Master Butcher Andrew Radford.

Continuing our range of meat, game and butchery courses this time we move to pork, Pork raised here at Carlton on the estate to be precise. In this busy and informative class, you will learn how to both cut some of the most popular cuts, plus curing your bacon and making sausages to take home with you. In addition, a couple of recipes using some of the cuts you will prepare.

There will be a maximum of six people only ion the course as it is a busy and intricate class. You will take home your bacon and sausage and there will also be a chance to buy some of the cuts of pork as well.

Presenting this course is one of our favourite chefs, Rob Green and master butcher Andrew Radford.
