Master Butcher Cole Ward Offers A Meat Cutting Workshop *Updated*

Hands-On Class for Meat Lovers!

                      Master Butcher (and my meat-cutting mentor) Cole Ward

New  dates –see below!

Renowned butcher, culinary mastermind, and my teacher Cole Ward is sharing his coveted butchering skills with fellow meat lovers June 25-26 during an informational and hands-on two-day seminar in Enosburg Falls, VT

Ranked among the top 50 butchers in the United States, Ward’s master butchering technique has played a pivotal role in the craft’s re-emergence onto today’s modern culinary scene. 
Vermont’s own Gourmet Butcher will get up close and personal with registered guests as he teaches participants how to master the art of butchering beef and pork. During the two-day seminar attendees will divide their days between preparing sausage, butchering pork and both beef hindquarters and forequarters into primal, retail and gourmet cuts.

Honing his craft for the greater part of the past four decades, Ward began his impressive career at the tender age of 14. Working part-time in a butcher shop stuffing sausages for 20 cents an hour, it wasn’t long before Ward began apprenticing full time.

His passion for butchering has led to a highly publicized and rewarding career, recently releasing a highly acclaimed DVD series The Gourmet Butcher: From Farm to Table which walks viewers through the butchering process from primal cut to gourmet meal.
As an increasing number of Americans seek out the provenance of the meat they consume, there is no greater transparency available today than butchering meat oneself.

Don’t miss out on this unforgettable seminar which will take place at 6235 Chester Arthur Road, Enosburg Falls, Vermont. With only 40 slots available, spaces are limited. Secure your place today by registering via email at and please include your name, address and phone number.
