Whole Pig Butchery Class

We are excited to welcome Butcher Kristina Glinoga to Osteria la Spiga on November 7th!
Part of our Future of Diversity Guest Chef Program.

Bundle up and join us for an outdoor Whole Pig Butchery Demo with warm beverages, snacks, and an opportunity to bring home some local pork!

Sunday Nov 7, 11am – 2pm | Doors open at 10:30am

Head butcher and owner of Butchery 101 Kristina Glinoga (Matt's in the Market, Restaurant Bateau, ChefSteps) will demonstrate basic butchery techniques and principles on a locally and sustainably raised whole pig (or side of pork). 

Learn about animal husbandry and welfare, workers' rights (from farmers to meat packers to chefs), and how to utilize every bit of an animal to maximize deliciousness and value. Also covered: how to shop for good meat purveyors and support a healthy local food economy. 

This will be a fun and educational 3-hour, in-person class, held outdoors on Osteria la Spiga's patio (dress warmly). Space is very limited, so don't delay!

*** Proof of vaccination will be required for attendance. ***
