Course Tutor David Coldman

What you will learn

Want to learn how to butcher a pig and make wonderful sausages to impress your family and friends? If so, this course is for you!

This is a busy day, covering a range of topics. The morning focuses on  butchery, starting with a brief look at health and safety aspects of dealing with meat, and the equipment needed. David will show you how to butcher a pig, discussing the various cuts and how they can be used. There are plenty of opportunities during the morning for the class to assist with the butchery, learn out to bone joints, and tie those knots!

The afternoon is hands-on with  sausage-making. You will learn what goes into making a great sausage and shown all the stages in making them. Then everybody has a go at making their own sausages, either using our traditional ‘banger’ recipe, or putting together their own flavour of sausage, followed by stuffing and linking their own sausages.


This course will give you a taste of  the versatility of pork and provide an introduction to the world of charcuterie






The numbers on these days are limited to 10 people so that everybody can see what is going on and ask questions.  Most of the day takes place in the butchery which is not heated so warm clothing and thick socks are needed! We provide protective clothing.

The price includes all tuition, course notes, light lunch and refreshments during the day.
