08 Apr The Whole HOG!
Take a pig from carcass to culinary classics with Peter Wolfe the Free Ranging Chef. On Tuesday April 9 learn how to break down a carcass and how to cook and enjoy all parts. You’ll come away knowing how to make sausages, bacon and the secret to good crackle! You’ll learn knife skills, cooking skills and you’ll gain a new respect for meat and the animals it comes from. Lunch and snacks are of course included!
You will work in pairs – and as a pair you will break down an entire carcasse – not watching but doing. At the end of the day that means we will have a lot of meat and you will get to take home some samples of your own handiwork – so bring your esky. The pigs you will be processing are free range Kandanga Farm animals that have lived a very full and free life.
Where: At The Kandanga Farm Store – 93 Main St Kandanga (2 hours north from Brisbane, 55 mins Noosa and the Sunshine Coast)
When: Tuesday the 9th April from 8:30 to 5pm. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to register and order a coffee.
This is a hands on class in a commercial kitchen – please wear comfortable, closed toe footwear and bring an apron to protect your clothes.
About your teacher: Peter Wolfe the Free Ranging Chef from Cedar Creek Farm Bushfoods. Peter is best known for his passion for Australian Native Bush foods. He is a chef gone wild – giving up the restaurant world to work with farmers in developing product ranges from their raw produce, to develop his own range of bush foods inspired condiments and to share his knowledge with foodies wanting to cook something different. Peter loves cooking with ingredients that baffle and intimidate – including offal and those less popular cuts that can pack so much flavor. Completely approachable and full of general cooking tips and ideas as well, Peter will make you feel at home.
About your host: The Kandanga Farm Store is all about food – and the farmers behind it. The Store is home to two businesses – Bos Rural and Kandanga Kitchen. Bos Rural is all about chemical free food production and country living; Kandanga Kitchen is a provenance cafe using local, seasonal produce. The Kitchen overlooks Kandanga Farm, a working organic farm.
Whether you’re a farmer or a foodie (or both!) there is something for you at The Kandanga Farm Store.
