The 4th Annual Forage, Slaughter & Butchery Course at La Tavola Marche yet again asks brave culinary travelers to forage, slaughter and butcher their meal…while on holiday in Italy. Inspired by Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma, the farm teaches students from around the world how to forage for mushrooms, slaughter (& butcher) a hen and then butcher a whole pig with knife-in-hand classes! This fall, experience Italian farm life first hand with this unique holiday.
If you call yourself a “foodie,” pig lover, wine-o, gourmet or gourmand this culinary holiday is for you! Vegetarians seek refuge elsewhere because for five nights in October & November it’s a all about meat in the foothills of the Apennine Mountains of Central Italy. A carnivore’s delight – whole hog butchering course, sausage making, chicken slaughtering with hands-on cooking classes, mushroom hunting, wine tour & cheese tasting with lunch and truffle festivals.
