Charcuterie Course

Spend a weekend with Gil Ferreira learning how to make cured meats.

Next Course - 7-9 July in the Darling region

Course includes full accommodation, all meals, beer appreciation and dinner at Darling Brew, bread appreciation breakfast at Rosemead Artisan - Bread & Pastries, all materials and recipe book and much more.

Charcutier, Gil Ferreira of The Flying Pig in Darling, has put together a 3-day charcuterie course like no other! He has developed this course to show people how easy this is to do at home with the equipment that you would typically find in your kitchen.

The course will cover the following:

  • What equipment you would need
  • What meat to buy, and where to buy it
  • Where to get ingredients and what ingredients are important
  • How to make some of the famous cured meats, easily, in your own kitchen

The course also includes beer and bread appreciation, showcasing the products of Darling Brewery and Rosemead Artisan Bakery – things that go really well with cured meats.

Come and have a fun filled weekend in the Darling region and learn how to make real slow food!         

Booking is essential as we can only take 20 people
