coppa pork charcuteria on chopping board with knifeFind out all it takes to home-cure your own cuts of pork in this charcuterie class led by Craig from Barfields Butchers.

Find out what goes into achieving delicious traditional British bacon and authentic Italian capocollo (also called coppa), learn about the cuts needed to produce the best cures and discover at first-hand how to choose the flavours for your own cured meat. You will mix spices and salt to produce your own wonderful cure and go home armed with all you need to know to ensure the curing process goes perfectly, including how to carry out the pH test that will let you know when your meat is just right to eat.

As a participant in this workshop you won’t be able to enjoy the fruits from your labours until four to six weeks down the line – and so that you can fully appreciate the difference in home-cured bacon without delay you’ll also get to taste some finished products in the class.

What previous participants said: “Everything was hands on and the facilities were amazing. Craig is so passionate and very friendly and accommodating it was a really good experience.” “Craig is a really engaging teacher… I hope I will always make my own bacon from now on!”

Craig is also running a butchery skills class at the Community Kitchen.

Tickets for this event include:

  • professional tuition
  • all ingredients and equipment
  • hot drinks throughout the session
  • cured bacon & coppa to take away
  • all recipes & after-care instructions from the class.

Any profits raised from this class support our community cookery activities – where everyone can experience the benefits of cooking and eating together, regardless of finance, confidence or ability.
