Event description
Hands-on Butchery & Meat Cookery Course with Pipers Farm at Exeter Cookery School

Hosted at Exeter Cookery School, our full-on one-day course with Peter Greig of Pipers Farm takes you on a fascinating journey.

What you’ll learn

You’ll find out how the farm’s animals are reared, what makes the meat so tasty and tender, and why it’s so much better for your health and pocket than mass-produced supermarket fodder.

You’ll learn about the various cuts of meat, butchery techniques and preparation prior to cooking, such as trimming, tying and rolling. Cooking methods such as searing, braising, poaching, roasting and stir-frying will be covered

Show more

You’ll learn about how to enhance the flavour by the varied use of seasoning, charring and marinading.

What you’ll butcher

Here are a few of the meats you could be butchering and cooking or even just sampling…

Lamb: break down a whole lamb carcass into a range of popular cuts such as shoulder (for a slow braised soft shoulder of lamb dish) and ****.

Chicken: Portion a free range chicken into breast, wing, thigh, drumstick and carcass – what you learn here holds for any bird

Duck: remove the breasts and legs; make stock from the carcass; slowly confit the legs so they end up soft and delicious; pan-fry the breast until pink, juicy and tender.

These are examples of the kind of dishes you could be making...

Slow-Braised Shoulder of Lamb – we’ll get this on early to have before you go home

**** of Lamb – chine, French-trim, score and roast a freshly butchered ****

Pan-Fried Breast of Chicken or Duck

Confit – salted duck leg slow-poached in duck fat

Meat Stock
