Bacon. The simple of addition of a few ingredients to good pork can elevate it to another level. In this Make Your Own Bacon workshop, you’ll learn how to utilise a piece of loin and belly pork to produce traditionally dry cured bacon. This isn’t the languid, floppy, wet bacon of the supermarket shelves, this is bacon like it used to be. You’ll learn to make back bacon, the staple of a good breakfast as well as a sweeter treacle cure and a regional Italian pancetta. And who best to teach you all about heritage recipes and authentic techniques than the BBC Food and Farming Best Producer, Charcutier Ltd. They make award winning cured, cooked, smoked and air dried charcuterie, from scratch and in small batches combining their family heritage and skills acquired from travelling the globe and working with some of the finest meat professionals.
Take home what you make on the day (approximate value £50) and enjoy a tasty lunch too!
