Choose from Four Options

  • $99 for a hog-butchering class (a $200 value)
  • $79 for a sausage-making class (a $160 value)
  • $79 for a pasta-making class focusing on gnocchi (a $160 value)

During hands-on classes, students learn everything from how to break down an entire side of hog to how to make sausage and bacon. The gnocchi class also includes making a porchetta sauce, and students will make a simple bolognese sauce in the string-pasta class. Each participant goes home with about a pound of food to enjoy later, and is invited to dine on their creations around a 20-foot signature table.

Harkness & Co. Butchers

The name of the game at Harkness & Co. Butchers is ethics: all of the meat it sells comes from local producers who follow humane and ethical farming practices. The staff receives organic meats and breaks down the entire animal in-house, ensuring that each cut is precise and that customers can find any piece of the animal, whether it's beef, pork, or poultry. Shoppers can pick up local free-range, nonmedicated beef, which gets dry-aged for at least 28 days to develop a rich, tender flavour profile. Prepared products include housemade sausages—available in classic Italian-style and chorizo varieties—as well as seasonal-spiced links and weekly specials. For those looking to cook with more exotic options, such as bison, goat, and unicorn, Harkness & Co. can order most meats to the store. Additionally, butchers lead classes in a stone-floored training annex on topics that include pasta making, butchery, and wine tasting.
