An extra special festive season event.

Sam Canning will kick off this November evening with a demonstration on how to prepare the ultimate full-leg ham for Christmas, including; scoring, glazing and baking. Sam and our butchers will then show you how to take your Christmas roast pork to the next level with a scored and rolled pork belly with a beautiful homemade stuffing and tied using traditional butchers’ methods. Then, since Christmas is the time of extravagant food – you’ll have the opportunity to make a Turducken Roll – the devilishly delicious hybrid-roast – (chicken fillets, stuffed in duck fillets, stuffed in a turkey fillet). With skills like there – you’ll be the toast of Christmas dinner!

We recommend this class if you’re wanting to cater a Thanksgiving, do trial cooks prior to Christmas – or just be SUPER prepared for Christmas by freezing what you’ve made (imagine having Christmas dinner sorted a month in advance!)

  • The Turducken Roll and Rolled Belly

*Each of our classes once-off commitments. You don’t need prior experience to pursue any of our classes (aside from domestic knife familiarity). Classes are managed by two or three (depending of the number of attendants) of our best butchers, they will assist everyone in the class and make sure it is a safe and comfortable learning environment. We want each of our students to feel confident and comfortable and most importantly not rushed!

Attendees must be 16 years of age or older.

All the cuts used in any of our classes are retail grade, premium free range meats, no hormones or antibiotics. It is our wish that these classes will give you a new appreciation and respect for meat.
