Butchery Workshop: Break down a goat with Dave the Butcher

Scroll down to purchase tickets...

UKSF's man-o-meat, Dave the Butcher, will kick off CUESA's Goat Festival with this annual favorite: goat butchery! 

Dave will lead the class in breaking down a whole goat in this hands-on butchery class appropriate for beginners, as well as those wishing to hone their knife skills.  Participants will learn about the benefits of goat meat, a lean red meat that's both healthy and easy on the environment.  A brief crash course in goat anatomy is included.

The class will then get to work, butchering various cuts of meat until the entire goat has been broken down. Students take home a boning knife, the meat they butcher, and various suggestions for preparing their specific cuts.

This class will be limited to 16 participants to ensure that everyone receives personalized instruction.

Date & Time: Wednesday, April 11, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Location: CUESA Dacor Teaching Kitchen, Ferry Plaza, San Francisco
Cost: $95**
