Time & Place
Sep 28, 2019, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Pico Restaurant, 458 Bell St, Los Alamos, CA 93440, USA
Most people avoid seeing how the sausage is made ... but you're not like most people, are you?
Learn how to make your own homemade sausage with our Head Folkie of the day and charcuterie expert, Chef Drew Terp (you may know him as the wizard in the kitchen at Pico in Los Alamos). You'll learn to break down meat properly, season it, select casing options and learn smoking techniques, all in a hands-on two-hour class. Folkies will make two different kinds of sausage during class and will take both home along with some recipes. For those interested in smoking your sausage, Drew is opening his personal smoker to you for pick up later that day. The class coincides with Los Alamos Old Days, so there is plenty to do in town that day!
