If you like the idea of making your own sausages more than the reality of actually grinding meat in your kitchen, head down to Oyama Sausage at Granville Island and go hog-wild. They are famous for their wide selection of prosciutto. My absolute favourite Oyama products are the Rabbit & Dijon Paté and the Toulouse sausage. Ridiculously delicious! Caution: Rabbit & Dijon Paté on baguette + glass of red wine = romance. It’s seriously that good. Just saying.
And if you would like to fall asleep with visions of delicious salami in your head* try one of Sandor Katz’s books, Art of Fermentation or Wild Fermentation for bedtime reading. He will learn you good.
*No double entendres were injured in the making of this blog. All double entendres are organic and free-range.
Do you have an updated schedule on classes offered?
I don’t, but I have a pretty short list of local places that do workshops under the resources menu:
I had a quick look and none of them have workshops scheduled anytime soon. The next one is a demo at Homesteader’s Emporium in March. Save-on-meats has been under renovations but they re-open this weekend so they may be offering classes again soon. It’s a good idea to call a place you would like to do a class and bug ’em something. 🙂
