Learn Something New
Butchery: Poultry 101
4505 Meats Kitchen
Hayes Valley
Wed, Mar 7

Learn how to prepare and butcher, both, chicken and duck from butchery master Ryan Farr. Ryan will cover a range of topics and skills, including butchery, portioning, various cooking techniques, proper storage and more. Classes are small, hands-on and appropriate for all levels.

Prepare Yourself

Most butchery classes include large (ok, huge) take-home portions of meat! The portions are vacuum sealed and labeled for easy storage and handling.


Class Description

  • The class will review tools, technique, anatomy, organ utilization, and desired end results
  • Students will butcher one duck and one chicken each
  • Once butchered, we will discuss and create various applications for the portions, such as Duck Confit and Coq Au Vin
