4505 Meats

Have you ever wanted to learn more about the meat you eat? Or even learn how to prepare all parts of an animal? Or maybe you are happy with just eating delicious burgers… Whatever your take on it may be, as long as you enjoy eating meat you will enjoy learning more about 4505 Meats.

This husband and wife team cuts and prepares meat to sell online and at Farmer’s Markets, along with leading the pack in education on their techniques. Classes are offered where students learn through doing, in this case, in cutting and preparing whole hogs or beef, going home with choice cuts and inspiration to make amazing meals.

If a class is not your speed (and at 6 people per class they sell out fast), then check out their book Whole Beast Butchery: The Complete Visual Guide to Beef, Lamb and Pork, which details what the classes demonstrate.

Or, maybe you are not an adventurous chef? Just want to get gourmet sausages delivered to your door? They do this too. Their website is a treasure trove of information, including  basic cooking terms and techniques for meat of all kinds. It will be a great bookmarked site for future reference. Find them here.
