It’s two days before the big game or dinner party. You have friends coming over and you want to impress them with your grilling and culinary skills. You’re standing at the meat counter at the big chain grocery store, “Now Serving” ticket in hand, clueless as to what to buy and why. I may be way off base, but I don’t think the high school student cleaning the grinder is will be of much help.
The teams at Everybody’s Hungry and The Ventura Meat Company have been on that same linoleum tile before, pacing back and forth hoping that some cellophane wrapped gem will sparkle and spare us the agony of evaluation. It’s a lonely feeling, which is why we’ve launched The First Cut educational series.
The First Cut is a series of interactive classes offered on premesis at The Ventura Meat Company, with a consistent theme and goal; to increase your knowledge about the meat you’re eating, where it’s coming from and how to enjoy it a little better. We may have some fun getting you in an apron too and helping you take YOUR First Cut.

– Sept. 26th: Cooking w/ & Enjoying Fats COMPLETED
