A Chicken Butchery Workshop
The Meatstress, Larissa Popa

How is it that our grandparents were able to swiftly breakdown a chicken for dinner, but today this whole process seems to be a forgotten kitchen skill.  New Years Resolution to get back to cooking? We’ve got you covered. 

The Meatstress, Larissa Popa is coming to frame for a hands-on chicken butchery workshop where you’ll learn how to execute basic chicken butchery skills, knife skills and learn the primal cuts of chicken, plus breaking down and trussing up a chicken. 

Plan on grabbing a knife and getting your hands dirty in this frame workshop filled with various chicken cookery techniques with an end goal to eat and utilize the entire animal. If you haven’t met Larissa (aka The Meatstress) be prepared to fall in love with her (and possibly your new) bubbling passion for butchery and charcuterie making. 

In-the-know with our best local farmers, Larissa works very closely with each of them to guarantee the highest quality product. According to Larissa, “ It is important for every chef to know who raises their meat and what it is fed. “ 

After your time in the kitchen, relax and sit down with your new found friends and enjoy a house made chicken lunch.  Chicken Poele, Roasted Potaotes + Jus Lie + Mushrooms. 

And yes……. you’ll go home with your “own” whole chicken, the very one you broke down at the start of the workshop.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
