Deer Butchery Masterclass
Tutor: Jamie Corry
A venison meal and refreshments included
ABOUT THE COURSE
A whole deer in a day course - learn butchery and cookery skills on this intimate, 4-person training course in the Hampshire South Downs. We promise you the most delicious, melt-in-the-mouth meat that you will have ever tasted, all prepared by your own fair hands.
The main outcomes of the course are for everyone to be able to skin, butcher and cook the different cuts of meat using a variety of techniques that show the versatility and flavour of wild venison. We will also be looking at how you can utilise other parts of a deer including sinew, fat, antlers, bones and hide.

"Thanks for a great day, I thoroughly enjoyed the day. I've been culling and processing deer for the last 20 years and just came for the day to polish my butchery skills. I was pleasantly surprised just how much extra I learned on the day from skinning through to the cooking. Massive thanks."
