Steak 101 Registration
A link to registration is below, please take a moment to read the class details before heading to the scheduler.
Two new classes added for Saturday, February 1st & 8th and 11 AM!
WHY ARE ONLY A FEW or NO CLASSES AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW?
Steak 101 is primarily held outdoors, while it is under cover and we hold it rain or shine, no one wants to be outside for two hours at 3o degrees with a north wind gusting through our patio. So, our classes in December through February are typically posted short notice. Once we see the forecast lends for favorable weather for a Saturday, we’ll shoot out an email and post on Facebook that we will hold a class. So, like us on Facebook and be on the lookout! We resume a normal full slate of classes in March!
Do you love steak but don’t know where to start in picking or grilling them? Or you just need to refine your skills or know someone who needs a grilling education. The leader in locally raised premium beef has a solution for you!
In this 2 and a half hour crash course, Local Yocal’s owner, Matt Hamilton will educate you on all things concerning steak! They will teach you the many steak cuts available and clear the fog of marketing confusion by discussing meat grading standards, and the real meaning behind “Natural”, “All Natural”, “Grass Fed”, “Certified Angus” and several other marketing terms. The second part of the class will take place right in the butcher’s cutting room, where you will learn where on the actual beef carcass different steak cuts originate before watching the butcher make the actual cuts.
The class will conclude with a discussion of different cooking techniques, a grilling demonstration and sampling.
WHEN ARE CLASSES HELD?
Generally most Saturdays in March through mid-November. We take August off due to the sweltering summer heat and start back up in mid-September. Classes are opened up on scheduler about 4 to 6 weeks in advance, so just continue to check back with us if you would like to enroll during a month not yet posted. We do occasionally hold classes in the “off” months if the weather is favorable, the best way to stay tuned to class offerings is to follow us on Facebook.
Class is approximately 2 and a half hours (sometimes up to 3 for an extra inquisitive group). The first and last part of class is held outdoors under our covered portico and we provide fans and seating, but it can still be rather warm. The middle part of the class is held inside our cutting room, which is kept at approximately 45 degrees. We turn off the refrigeration unit fans during class to increase the comfort level. You may wish to bring a light jacket, but most people find that portion of the class to be a nice reprieve from the heat.
To participate in the butcher’s room portion, students must wear closed toe, non-slip shoes (heels, slick or leather soles will absolutely not be allowed), and long hair must be pulled back.
Regular cost of Steak 101 is $40. Payment is not made online, please be prepared to pay the day of or when you are shopping with us between now and then. If you purchased a voucher via AmazonLocal, Living Social or Groupon, please present it on the day of class.
NEED TO CANCEL?
We are glad to reschedule you for another class, but please provide at least two days notice. A $15 rescheduling fee applies if you do not adhere to this policy and no shows will result in forfeiture of fee or voucher. Thank you for understanding, we are a small business and have to plan accordingly for staffing and supplies ahead of time. Thank you so much for choosing to join us! We look forward to meeting you!
