Lesson Details
Full Day Butchery - Why does this cost £1,000?

For a Full Day Butchery course Lee will source and butcher a whole pig, this isn't cheap!

Lee can accommodate up to ten people on these courses so they're perfect for big groups who want to split the cost or for events and special occasions.

  • Charcuterie tasting (£15pp) 1 hours

    Everything you ever wanted to know about charcuterie, from how it’s made to how it should be served. You’ll sample different cuts Dorset’s finest cured meats as Lee explains what goes into creating the complex flavour notes of each. You’ll learn how to slice the meat to give the best experience, and will leave with a small selection to take home.

    Full day butchery (minimum 10 people, £100pp)

    We all know that sausages and bacon come from pigs, but have you ever wondered how they’re really made? Starting with a full pig, Lee will teach you how to butcher the animal, and which parts make what. Once you’ve learnt how to prepare the meat, you’ll make a string of sausages to take home. Warning, this is not for the faint-hearted!
  • While working for a local company that produced premium smoked meat hampers, Lee realised that, despite the fact that all other meats were delivered by UK suppliers, the charcuterie was always shipped in from Spain. Keen to show that Britain is capable of producing smoked and air dried meats that can rival Europe’s best, he and a friend applied for a grant through the Prince’s Trust and set up The Dorset Charcuterie Company. Lee is passionate about the whole process, from slaughtering home reared pigs to butchering and curing, and even once gave a lesson to Jamie Oliver when appearing on Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast.
