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
