Us, you and a whole lot of pork. If that doesn’t sound like fun... well, we don’t know what will excite you. Pork is one animal where everything has a use and we intend to show you (“everything but the oink” as they say!). From head to trotter, and butt to ham, pork is so much fun discovering where all the cuts come from and how they are intended to be used. This is a demonstration class where you will watch our Head Butcher Dave Meli take apart a whole pig into all its cuts – Butt, Picnic, Country style ribs, Side ribs, Back ribs, Belly, Loin, Top sirloin, Hams and more!
The Live to Eat classes hosted by The Healthy Butcher are hugely popular and have received rave reviews in newspapers, magazines, and blogs for the last decade.
In these unique classes, you will learn everything from the basics of a holding a knife to cutting up whole chickens to butchering whole beef to making your own sausages. The classes are intimate, fun, and jam-packed with useful knowledge, all delivered with the passion for which The Healthy Butcher is known.

CANCELLATION POLICY: We work very hard planning and teaching these classes… which is why they sell-out so quickly and so far in advance. Last minute cancellations are neither good for us, nor others who would have signed up for the class. It is for this reason that any cancellations must be done seven (7) days in advance for the class, and the money you spent on the class will be converted into a gift certificate to be used for anything on RealFoodToronto.com – whether it be another class or groceries. Cancellations that are done less than seven (7) days in advance forfeit 100% of the class charge.
