Class: Sunday February 28th
World renowned Tuscan butcher Dario Cecchini descends from a long line of butchers. He works to preserve centuries old recipes in his antique-style butcher shop in Panzano, Italy. Dario partners with the University of Florence in his endeavor to save the endangered species that are integral to traditional Tuscan cuisine. He also unites farmers and restaurant owners to continue producing and serving local products.
Riccardo Ricci, Dario's right hand man and the first non-Cecchini to work in the shop in over 250 years is coming to Avedano's this February 28th to lead a class in breaking down a pig from head to tail. He will also provide recipes corresponding to each cut of the pig. Of the dishes Riccardo will make will be "Tonno del Chianti" - pork spiced, massaged, marinated, and slow cooked for 3 hours and then packaged in sunflower oil. Amazing on a sandwich. The class is $110 and includes ample tastings.
More information is coming. In the meantime check out Dario's blog and give us a call with questions: 415.285.6328
