San Francisco, CA
Tickets to this event will be available August 8th at 10AM
About the workshop:
The whole chicken: Butchery, carving and making stock
This workshop will help you learn to cook, carve and make stock from a single whole chicken. Having trouble cutting up a chicken before you cook it or carving it if you cook it whole?
Jonathan Lewis will demonstrate how to cut a chicken into 8 easy- to- cook pieces. In case you decide to cook the bird whole, he will demonstrate how to carve a whole cooked chicken into delectable morsels. We will show a foolproof method for separating the leg from the thigh. These are easy-to-learn techniques that will allow you to master the fowl. Towards the end of the workshop, Jonathan will share his technique and recipe for making stock, and teach you how to get the most meals and nutrition from a single chicken.
At the workshop Jonathan will have a limited number of whole poulet rouge chickens available for purchase for $28.50 (cash or check only).These chickens are a heritage breed and mature more slowly (12 weeks rather than 8 weeks) thus having more time to develop a rich flavor. Each chicken can weigh between 4.5lbs and 6lbs, from Amber & Sons Farm. This will be the freshest chicken you'll ever eat-- chickens will be slaughtered only 3 days before the workshop!
About the instructor:
Jonathan Lewis operates Pastoral Plate, a CSA and meat buying collective based in the Mission. Pastoral Plate's primary mission is to offer its members the very best local meat. The company brings people together to influence the quality of their food, and to improve the functioning of our local food economy.
Jonathan Lewis, the chief Moo of Pastoral Plate, has spent the last two years untangling his own understanding of local food, by conducting business with local ranchers and farmers, working with processors, non-profits, and loaning money in inventive ways to support organic practices in the Bay Area. Good food is expensive but it shouldn't become a luxury. Pastoral Plate is committed to educating the community about our precarious local food economy.
