What happens in this class?

Ross welcomes you into his new Smokery along a cobbled mews in Streatham, London. From pig to bacon, Ross is connected with the meat from start to finish, sourcing from local farms.

Throughout the session 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 they typically use on their wonderfully sourced native breed meat. This is definitely a hands-on course where there’s more doing than talking.

The lesson concludes with plenty of rounds of bacon sandwiches. You'll walk away with…

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.

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 :)

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!
