Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

It's a poor craftsman that blames his tools.

Sounds interesting. Is that in the normal price range that one would expect?

Thinking of it for DH but he already knows a fair amount about butchery (tho those who attended our pig roasts may beg to differ!) and can certainly already tie roasts and cut pork chops. Not sure exactly what level this would be aimed at.

Speaking of porchetta - Serious Eats did some interesting Food Lab stuff with it a little while back.

Click on this for some fine butchery pictures

The whole hog butchery class was informative and fun for me. I took one of the tenderloins and a fresh 12oz. pork chop, got to watch and listen to Rusty and Steve talk us through the breakdown of the 2 halves of the pig from Gum Creek Farm and listened as Tommy from GCF talked to us about pig farming and the challenges that go on here in Georgia and elsewhere.  We butchered a Berkshire hog yesterday but Gum Creek Farms has 4 breeds of heritage hogs that they can provide.  Most of our favorite restaurants are Tommy's customers all the way back to the time of Michael Touhy and before.  I sortof wish they had a butchery apprenticeship. 

Some of you folks are lucky enough to live near the places where Gum Creek Farm and Pine Street Market products are available at your weekly farmers market or CSA.

Some new classes by Rusty Bowers and his gang...   I will attend the May 3rd  cured meat class.  These classes are fun and very instructional.

I took the lamb butchery class today..  Perhaps a bad day (considering college football and all) to do a class and in fact it was sparsely attended but it was a great learning experience and along with the class I have some nice fresh lamb chops and some sausage made into crepinette's. 

Ultra Foodie was there and a couple other "students" I had not met before..   Hopeton Hibbert the butcher/manager did the hands on class in about 3 hours, fed us twice and sent us packing with a bag of lamb..   What could be wrong with that ?
