Meat Curing & Smoking Workshop

Immerse Yourself in the Art of Charcuterie!

No one knows all the tricks better than renowned local butcher, Marc-Frederic. The man described by the French as ‘Le Charcutier Anglais’. Marc’s skill with meat is such that he holds the rare distinction of being an Englishman registered as an artisan butcher and charcutier with the exacting Le Chambre de Metiers de la Charente. Marc will be hosting this hands-on workshop, and will be sharing some of his wealth of tips and tricks picked up both here and abroad.

You will learn how to salt and cure different meats using the simple and clever traditions of charcuterie.  You will discover how to make meat go further, how to transform the thriftiest cuts of meat by using simple salting and curing techniques, and then turn them into stunning recipes.

There will be plenty of tasting going on throughout the day and Clavelshay Barn will be serving a scrumptious lunch, including Clavelshay’s own smoked and cured meats and the best local seasonal ingredients from the Somerset region.

By the end of the day, you will have helped to make various samples of delicious charcuterie to take home with you.
