Steak 101 Registration
A link to registration is below, please take a moment to read the class details before heading to the scheduler.
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 every Saturday in June & July we offer classes twice per day, we take August off due to the sweltering summer heat and start back up in mid-September running through December depending on the weather. You will notice on the scheduler that we do not have classes open through the end of July, we typically open classes a month in advance more or less, depending on how quickly current classes fill.
Class is approximately 2 and a half hours. 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.
