A Butchery Masterclass for Christmas?


What do you give that special someone for Christmas who just seems to have everything?

A gift voucher for a butchery masterclass from Walter Rose & Son is a great present idea!

The Walter Rose & Son Master Class is designed to give a better understanding about the way we source our meat and offers the opportunity to learn some valuable butchery skills.

Each of our classes will last approximately two hours and will be run by our own butchers. Throughout the session, participants will get a hands-on experience under close supervision, learning basic knife skills as they go.

The Master Class also includes a tour of our cutting plant as well as an insight into how the animals are raised and slaughtered, as well as advice on some of our preferred cooking methods.

At the end of the class all butchery students will get a Walter Rose & Son apron and a butcher’s knife, as well as some of the meat they have butchered.

In addition, to encourage further practice of knife skills at home, delegates will also get a 20% discount card to be used in our shops for the six weeks following the class.

Places on each course are limited as we want to keep class numbers small, so please book as early to avoid disappointment. The classes are held at our butchers shop in Devizes and as parts of the Master Class will be taking place in our meat preparation area, so butchery students are asked to come suitably dressed. Warm clothing is advised, as well as flat shoes with a good grip.

As each Master Class focuses on a particular animal, we suggest mentioning the topics of interest on initial enquiry and we will do our best to meet individual requirements. Whether you are a keen marksman looking to hone your butchery skills in the game season or keep your own livestock and would like to learn more about breaking-down the whole animal into cuts, our expert tutors will ensure you enhance your knife skills repertoire and lean valuable butchery techniques.
