The Meat Room

Learn From Us

We are both very fortunate to have had a generations of preparing, cooking, preserving of food handed down to us and while you may have this passion running through your blood, we recognise not everyone has had the opportunity to learn these traditions. In honour of our heritage, we are privileged to be able to pass our traditions onto you.

Have you always wanted to learn how to make salami, sausages, cure meats, pasta, tomato sauce, even the perfect Italian pizza dough?

The Meat Room is expanding, offering a variety of courses throughout the year, so that you can come and learn from us. If there is something you want to learn that we haven’t listed, we are happy to look at private classes for smaller groups.

The Meat Room will be running courses throughout 2018. Connect with us on Facebook or subscribe to our mailing list so you can be the first to know about our upcoming courses.
