Ruby and White Butchery Masterclasses
Set to launch in the Spring of 2015; Ruby & White Butchery Masterclasses are the perfect introduction for those looking to get to grips with the fundamental skills of the butchery trade. In addition to the butchery basics, the short, practical courses - based in the award-winning shop on Whiteladies Road, will also aim to cover everything from an overview of modern farming processes in the UK to essential knife skills and care.
Attendees will each have the opportunity to observe Ruby & White Master Butcher Dave Kelly demonstrating his butchery expertise, before setting to work themselves to create their own joints of meat - even taking a little of their wares home to share with friends and family.
Class sizes are extremely limited in order to provide the best and most beneficial experience for each attendee. Launching with a choice of three initial classes - Game, Pork and Beef; the beef class sees Ruby & White teaming up with their sister restaurant, The Cowshed, to offer an in-depth guide to steak, instilling attendees with the confidence to select, cut, season and cook the perfect steak at home.
