WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Berkshire Food Guild will offer a Whole Hog Workshop on Saturday, Aug. 24 at Cricket Creek Farm in Williamstown.
This event marks the beginning of a series of workshops and gatherings with the aim of sharing information and knowledge about food craft skills.
"The Whole Hog Workshop grew out of our collective passion for pigs and pork," said Berkshire Food Guild co-founder and butcher Jake Levin. "The pig represents the essence of nose-to-tail butchery and sustainable food systems. So many people love pork and charcuterie and yet, are mystified by it."
The Whole Hog Workshop will be a full-day event with Levin, charcutier Jazu Stine, and chef Jamie Paxton. The hands-on butchery workshop will include information on where the various cuts come from, their characteristics and the best approaches for cooking and curing each cut.
The workshop will begin at 10:30 a.m. Tickets are $350 per person, including beverages, lunch and dinner.
Tickets can be purchased at bfgwholehog.eventbrite.com.
