Adding some butchery techniques to your kitchen skills can give your menu and wallet a boost. New skills can open up a whole world of new menu possibilities while you save by buying economical larger pieces of meat to be broken down for preparation.
Big Lou’s Butcher Shop is offering the chance to learn a variety of new skills with the launch of their Fall classes on Sunday September. 21st. Their expert team will lead both a Whole Hog butchery and a Sausage Making course in-store at 269 Powell Street in Railtown.
Entry is $175 per person for either course and class size is limited to six people to allow participants plenty of instruction and hands-on practice during the session. Whole Hog participants will leave with 12 lbs of non-medicated Fraser Valley pork cuts while Sausage Making participants will take home 5 lbs. of sausages to enjoy.
The Whole Hog Course will run from 11:00am-1:00pm and the Sausage Making course will run from 2:30pm to 4:30pm. The shop will be closed while the classes are being run and more classes are planned for the 3rd Sunday of October and November, depending upon demand.
Places can be reserved by stopping in or calling the store at 604-566-9229, though fees must be paid in person. For more information on Big Lou’s Butcher Shop, visit www.biglousbutchershop.com.
