Preparing Wild Game

Cost: $35

Instructor: Tanith Tyrr, NCSU Wild Foods Competition First Place Winner

This class covers the basics of preparing wild game for the table. This will include skinning, edible and useful organs, and identifying the best ways to prepare and use a particular carcass with minimal waste and truly delicious results. At the end of class, we will have some attractively prepared wild game that is ready to go to the kitchen for our sampling enjoyment along with other foraged wild ingredients.

    Please note that this class is mostly indoors, but some of the messy parts will be outdoors. Come dressed in layers for the weather.

    Notes for class participants: Parking has changed due to construction. Please arrive a few minutes early. We will have a staff member stationed at the front of the road to handle registration and parking access. Watch for her as you are approaching the park entrance. Stop when you see her and she will direct you where to go. We will be working with some live animals and demonstrating humane dispatch methods. You will want clothes that you can get messy in. You may bring your own knives and tools if you have them, but please mark them clearly with tape so they do not get mixed up with other people's implements.

    Participants may eat and enjoy what we cook up for demonstration purposes, throughout the class as we prepare foods and after the class ends at 6. The meal and cleanup will be complete by 7pm. Let us know if you have any food allergies.

    If interested, in recieving a discount in exchange for work study, please contact Sarah (ahead of time) at: [masked]

    Is there any chance that you will be doing this again at some point?

      There are three classes; the second is on hide tanning and the third is focused on gourmet game preparation. I may just repeat the series after the third class, but they will all be at least a month apart. The third class in this series will have some simple butchering and carcass prep with much more gourmet kitchen time, while the first class has much more extensive and varied butchering, skinning and carcass prep time and less kitchen time.

    Bring your appetite - the wild feast will be ON. Appetizers and sampling will start as soon as the teams have gotten their game in order, and the big wild game dinner right after class.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
