"The Butcher's Course" Advanced Art of Butchery

If you're serious about your meat our Advanced classes should be your destination. In this course, our Master Butchers will guide you through nose-to-tail fabrication of your choice of a whole local pig, Colorado Lamb carcass, or primal cuts of beef. These courses can be held in the comfort of your home kitchen with one or two students, or in our USDA facility with groups of 5 or more. For the food connoisseur, there is simply no epicurean experience that can compare. Our students develop wide-ranging butchery skills, as they fabricate whole carcasses using the same saws and knives that have been utilized in the butchery trade for centuries.  These intimate classes last between 3 and 4 hours and may also encompass custom grinding to create chopped meat and artisanal sausage making. Students keep all the meat they fabricate from the animals, which ranges from 60-120 lbs. of perfectly portioned cuts.

Classes are held by appointment only and may be held at Mosner Family Brands in the Bronx, New York or a location of the student's choosing. Cost per student ranges from $499-$2,500. Group pricing and Corporate Events available.
