If you keep your own sheep, want to develop your butchery skills or would like to learn how to cook a range of tasty dishes using British lamb and mutton, then this is the course for you.
Guided by tutor Andrew Sharp, an artisan butcher and adviser to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales on his Mutton Renaissance Campaign, you will learn the practical butchery techniques and cooking skills needed to prepare and cook these delicious meats for maximum natural flavour. You will also discover more about British meat and native breeds, learning the differences between lamb, hogget and mutton.
The day combines butchery demonstrations working with whole carcasses and food tastings. At the end of the course the different cuts of lamb and mutton will be cooked so students can compare the flavours and textures.
Meat butchered on the day is available for you to take home. The School of Artisan Food makes a conscious effort to reduce waste and packaging. Students are welcome to bring their own containers to transport their food home.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day, as well as a buffet style lunch prepared by our team of chefs. All ingredients, equipment and recipes will be provided.
