Ryan Fibiger, owner of Craft Butchery (opening soon in Saugatuck, Westport) will be making a unique appearance at The Westport Farmer's Market on Thursday October 13th. He will be walking guests through two butchering demonstrations at 11am and 1pm.
Ryan feels passionately that for anyone who loves food, understanding where food really comes from is an integral part of the culinary experience. The demos will be on a side (half) of a heritage breed, pasture-raised pig sourced from the Hudson Valley.
Throughout the demos Ryan will be hosting a discussion and Q&A on the following topics:
-Basic butchering techniques and tools
-Overview of the animal (farm, breed, age, feed, slaughter, primal cuts, etc.)
-Demonstrate break down of basic primal cuts
-Demonstrate break down into the case-ready cuts that everyone recognizes
For those not yet acquainted with Craft Butchery, here is what you have to look forward to:
Coming this Fall to Westport, Saugatuck Craft Butchery is bringing back the tradition and craftsmanship of the neighborhood butcher with a modern twist. They celebrate the skill and tradition of butchering through our unique selection premium quality meats. They are dedicated to only carrying pasture-raised meat from small, local farms that share our values of quality and sustainability, and they only source whole animals and follow a nose-to-tail philosophy, meaning that we use every part of the animal. They are one of the only butcher shops in the country to source and butcher in this way.
