Porter Road's James Peisker to Cut Up at Butcher Demo This Weekend

Posted By on Thu, Mar 6, 2014 at 6:03 AM

James Peisker, one of the master butchers at Porter Road Butcher is usually willing to show off a few tricks of his trade if you ask him nicely. But this Sunday, March 9, he'll be offering an exclusive butchering demo for ten lucky patrons at their Charlotte Avenue location from noon until about 3.

Peisker is a classically trained chef (and will compete next month at the Scene's Iron Fork as in a two-man team with fellow Porter Road chef-butcher Chris Carter).

He's been cutting meat since he was still tender himself at the age of 18, and he plans to share some of his insights into the restaurant business and process a whole hog for the entire class to see. He'll break it down into primal components and then further into individual cuts. The class will grind their own sausage and discuss the magic of bacon curing before going home with a bag of piggy goodies and a free T-shirt.

Tickets (if they're still available) are $200, and you can sign up at either PRB location, but full payment is required to hold your spot at the butcher block.
