Daytime

Ross welcomes you into his personal smokehouse and kitchen in his wonderfully overgrown city garden. From pig to bacon, Ross is connected with the meat from start to finish, sourcing from a local farm. Cook bacon on a stove outside with your hands wrapped around a cup of tea to start the morning off and as the sun starts to rise you get to the nitty-gritty of making bacon, smoking flavour into the meat and knife skills.

Throughout the morning you'll learn all about the basic cuts of meat used in bacon making and get to grips with a range of introductory butchery techniques that we typically use on our wonderful locally sourced organic meat. You also talk in depth about the dry and wet curing blends before getting our sleeves rolled up and having a go yourselves.

This is definitely a hands-on course where there’s more doing than talking. You'll walk away with all the skills and meat you'll need to make your own bacon at home, a few pieces that you'll have cured on the day, and a full belly.

London Smoke & Cure is an artisan food brand selling meat, smoked fish, cashew butter and various other products Ross creates and perfects in his outdoor 'studio'. A favourite food supplier to the locals in the Crystal Palace area, London Smoke & Cure are experts in their field and Ross is a brilliant teacher and one of the best to learn from.

This butchery class is both suitable for beginners, or people who have an avid interest in butchery and want to get more to grips with the techniques and flavours used in smoking.

The class was brilliant. We wrapped up warm as it was a freezing cold morning, but the hot tea and bacon sarnies really helped I've got to say, we were happy as larry before the class even began!Ross obviously knew his stuff and has a real passion for the business and the industry he works in. He was keen to show us some of the other recipes he was developing as well, we had a little sneak peak at his smoked cashew butter! It was delicious - the perfect accompaniment to our bacon sandwiches. We all had a great time, went home with sooo much food and having had a wonderful time. The day had barely begun but we knew we wouldn't be able to top that. Best bit of our weekend definatley, thoroughly enjoyed it!

I absolutely loved this class! Ross is such a great teacher, and I learnt so much about the different types of smoking and curing. The morning started with the most delicious bacon sandwiches, which made me even more excited to start making my own. Thanks to Ross and Obby for a wonderful experience :)

What a fantastic experience with Ross. He was very welcoming (even when we were a bit late) and is a brilliant teacher. In just a few hours we learnt so much and I cannot wait to go back for my early morning smoking class! 100% recommend for anyone with an interest in butchery, smoking or food in general.
