Learn to take apart whole chickens and rabbits, lamb shoulders and legs, suckling pig and large cuts of beef and pork in order to prepare roasts, ribs, steaks, stewing meat, ground meat and more. Apply your hands-on butchery skills to cutting and tying meat for a variety of recipes that you can prepare at home.
