Dry-Curing Meat for the Home Cook

  • Eden Hall Campus, Lodge Kitchen 6035 Ridge Road Gibsonia, PA, 15044 United States (map)

In this exciting workshop, participants will learn methods and technique for at-home meat curing and aging. This includes supplies, set up, meat selection, recipes, and methods. The participants will have the opportunity to take home their own soppressata, and learn about aging other types of meat as well! This is a perfect class for someone who attended a Sausage from Start to Finish workshop and is looking to take their skills to the next level, although all are welcome! The workshop will conclude with a tasting of home-cured meats.
