Classes at Meridian Meats are carried out by Jim Sutcliffe. We offer a range of evening courses aimed at teaching you all
about the meat, where it comes from, how and when it is used and also a
range of basic butchery skills. Jim is well versed in all
aspects of cutting meat, the ageing process, how to make cured
meats and sausages.
At present there are 3 main classes on offer, Lamb, Pork and Sausages but more will be added in due course. Classes run on most Wednesday evenings, starting at 6pm and last approximately 3 and a half hours. Each class will take you through the
butchery of that particular subject before you are taught how to prepare
some cuts, followed by sitting down to a feast prepared from the meat we have
butchered. After which the evening concludes and you get to take home
your cuts of meat, graduation T-shirt and certificate.
