Egg House Butchers 01

Aimed at food lovers and keen home cooks who want to learn a new skill, the experts at Haddenham's Egg House Butchery have designed a class to give you a good basic understanding of some traditional butchery skills; helping you to buy meat and get the most out of it.

At their first class on the 16th of April they will demonstrate how to joint and spatchcock chickens, bone and roll legs of lamb and how to maximise a whole shoulder of pork.

Says Ricky "You will get to roll up your sleeves and prep chicken, lamb and pork joints, with a general focus on cuts suitable for the BBQ. You will be able to take home all the meat that you have prepared to enjoy at home with friends and family (or all by yourself if you don't want to share)."

The class sizes are limited, giving Ricky and Scott time to spend with everyone, supervising participants as they work and answering any questions arising. This is a unique opportunity to pick the brains of our brilliant local butchers!

Classes are held at the Egg House Butchery in Haddenham on Gibson Lane (next to the former Red Lion pub). They run once a quarter, on Saturday afternoons, from 3pm until 6pm and include tea and homemade cakes.

The cost per person is £130 — this includes all the meat you will prepare, including any bones if you want to make stocks, as well as some recipe ideas.

If you would like to buy the class as a gift just let Ricky and his team know and they will provide you with a voucher. Vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase, and classes must be booked within this period.

You can also make a private group booking if you want a really different hen or stag do, or simply have a group of friends who are all a bit geeky about meat. Please get in touch with Egg House Butchers to see what they can offer.
