The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership's Community Kitchen is a cookery school where everyone can cook, learn new skills and enjoy food with others. We want everyone to experience the benefits of cooking and eating together. By paying for a cookery class, you help other people to attend cookery activities, regardless of finance, confidence or ability, and to make lasting changes to their lives.
This unique class with Chef Toby Geneen will be based upon the little practiced but highly useful technique of 'seam butchery'.
Originating in southern Europe, especially Italy, 'seam butchery' is the technique of breaking whole joints of meat into its constituent muscle pieces. The art form uses a cutting technique that has been around for centuries and celebrated for transforming what in England are usually roasting cuts into highly adaptable steaks.
In this class you will:
- Be taught the key principles of butchery which you can use elsewhere
- Learn how to bone and seam butcher a leg of lamb into steaks
- Prepare and eat a meal with the steaks accompanied by wild garlic and seasonal vegetables with a paired wine
Toby spent five years as the founding Chef of Brighton's Kindling Restaurant (featured in the Michelin Guide). Across his 16 years experience in the restaurant industry he has honed his expertise in whole animal butchery.
Tickets for this event include:

- a full meal to enjoy at the end of the class in our dining area (or to be boxed and taken away to enjoy at home)
