In this intensive demonstration cured meats / charcuterie class, you will discover the intricacies and learn the processes involved in producing salami and cured Italian meats such as Salami, Pancetta and Capocollo. You will learn of the popular ‘nose to tail’ production method that includes using the whole animal for its main parts and how to best utilise them for the tastiest of results!
Pancetta is the Italian term for cured pork belly. Capocollo or Coppa, is the Italian term for cured pork neck. These are two of the most popular parts used in the class as well as making salami for the novice or even the experienced enthusiast will find there is much more to learn.
This is a heritage food workshop and all the charcuterie processes demonstrated are based on the traditional Italian methods and techniques practiced and mastered over generations.
You will be guided through this fascinating experience by our expert and Melbourne’s Sausage Queen, Norcina Sara Grazia. Sara will demonstrate the processes involved in producing classic Italian meats, from start to finish.
Learn the correct ways on how to prepare and process your meat, blend recipes, casing selection and preparations, as well as the all-important curing process.
Sara will introduce you to a variety of specialist supplies and equipment that are needed to produce quality small goods, simply and efficiently today, while still maintaining an authentic and traditional approach to the methods involved in the process.
At the end of this lesson you will be treated to a generous gourmet tasting of all the antipasto you see made with tasty accompaniments upstairs in our beautiful bar area! You will leave with the confidence and knowledge to successfully make your own cured meats and salami at home full of flavour and succulence.
This can make up part of a team building experience to taste and learn the tradition of small goods - their origin and diversity of flavours and technique. Our location is complete with a liquor licence can provide your own team building experience and private sessions can be requested for Christmas end of year unique experiences!
