Class Format and Content
Classes meet in two sessions, allowing more time to cover critical aspects of food handling, food safety, and sausage making. Classes will be held on two consecutive weekdays (Tuesday and Wednesday) in 2012 and 2013. When making your reservation, please note which class you'd prefer.
We teach you safe and efficient processing techniques along with tricks of the trade in these two-evening classes. Each class will be held from 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM. Pre-registration is required, and class sizes are limited to 20 students. Classes without a minimum number of enrollees may be subject to rescheduling or cancellation (your money would be refunded).
