Description

Unlike other classes, The Quality Chop House takes a whole carcass approach to butchery. You will learn the principles of this art and get a feel for all the different cuts.

The sourcing of meat for the class follows the same principles as everything served in the restaurant; it comes from one of the five farms The Quality Chop House works directly with. These small-scale producers are from Yorkshire, Galloway, Suffolk, Hereford and Leicestershire. All animals are butchered professionally on-site before being aged appropriately in the cold room.

Classes start with a brief talk about the meat, the species you are working with, different methods of rearing - how this influences the character and flavour - and how to assess quality when buying, different breeds and their importance.

The Head Butcher will then show you how to break the carcass into main primal cuts. Working in a small group, you will have a go yourself. Further break down the primal cuts into pieces ready for cooking, working with knowledgable guidance.

The evening will end with a three-course “Butcher’s Menu” dinner in The Quality Chop House's restaurant next door. As a TRULY guest, you will also receive the cuts of meat you prepared during the class as a parting gift.

Sample Menu

  • Brown crab, toast
  • Galloway beef, Jersey Royals, ramson pesto, watercress
  • Gariguette & almond tart, Ivy House cream
