Basics of Curing & Smoking Workshop

Friday 6th March 2020 10am-4pm – £85 per person

Book your place by using the Workshops Form at the bottom of this page.

This is a friendly and relaxed beginners one day workshop for anyone who may be interested in learning the basics of curing and smoking meat and fish.

The day will be held on our smallholding in The Cambrian Mountains in West Wales and will include a light (and smoky!) lunch and refreshments.

You will learn about the basic principles of food safety and how that relates to curing and smoking meat, fish and other foods.

Different smoking and curing methods will be discussed including how you can think about smoking at home and you will try your hand at several stages of the process. You will have a go at de-boning and curing some local pork for bacon and try your hand at curing salmon for Gravlax! You will leave with both of these to take with you and continue curing at home.

We will taste smoky foods and get excited about different flavours and you will also leave with some of the fully cured and ready to be cooked bacon that will have been smoking all day!

Numbers are strictly limited, so if you would like to book a place please let us know by using the form below. Once confirmed that you have a place for the workshop we will either send a paypal link for payment or you can pay by bank transfer.

Day including lunch, bacon to take home and cure, salmon to take home and cure and smoked bacon to take home and eat!

Cost £85 per person.
