New Classes Announced for May (Pig, Lamb, Kombucha & More)

Continuing our “Meat on Tuesday” series, Butcher Tom Mylan (Marlow and sons/Diner/Bonita) will return on Tuesday, May 6th to take us through how to cut up a WHOLE lamb (technically it’s actually an older Sheep, but lamb sounds so much nicer), while explaining where common and some uncommon cuts come from on the animal. We will be using a farm-raised “lamb” from Fleisher’s meats in Kingston, NY, and each attendee will receive a portion (approx 6-8lbs) of mutton to take home. As with all of our meat demonstrations, it is not hands on, but there will be ample time for questions.  The demo starts at 6:30pm, and costs $100.  There are only 12 slots, so sign up now before they’re all gone!

Speaking of all gone, Tom is coming back a week later for another of the Half Pig Butchering demos.  That one is on May 20th at 6:30 pm and the cost is $75.  The previous 5 classes all sold out, so if you missed out, here’s your chance!  Check out the pics here… and then sign up here!

It may seem like it, but it’s not all meat all the time here at the Brooklyn Kitchen.  Kombucha, pickles, condiments, knife skills and more- after the jump…

Join Chef Elise Maiberger as she demonstrates how to make the most popular drink in town…KOMBUCHA! Students will learn the history of the beverage, its health benefits, and will take their own batch home. It all happens at 6:30pm on Thursday May 8th. The class will run 90 minutes and costs $30.  Sign up here.

On Wednesday May 14th we have Chef Brendan in the store to lead this hands-on class on how to make your own mayo, ketchup and vinaigrettes from fresh ingredients.  Behold the captivating power of emulsion! A perfect way to get ready for BBQ season.  The class will start at 6:30 PM and is $35.  Sign up here.

And finally, don’t miss out on the free pickling demo on Sunday May 18th.  Bob McClure of McClure’s Pickles will put up whatever’s fresh from 1-3pm.  Then, pick up some pickling jars so you can apply what you’ve learned at home!
