If you’ve ever wolfed down a pork chop, slice of bacon or sausage link and thought, “I wonder how they turned a pig into this,” you’re in luck.
Chris Bolyard, the owner and head butcher at Bolyard's Meat and Provisions (2810 Sutton Boulevard, Maplewood; 314-647-2567), will be offering guided butcher classes once a month this autumn. Each class will be about two and a half hours and will cost $125. During the course, each guest will be able to sample Bolyard's charcuterie along with local beers and drinks, while at the end each guest will go home with one pound of sausage and two fresh cuts.Bolyard is a graduate of Culinary Institute of America and his shop has been “the undisputed king of butchery in St. Louis” since its 2014 inception.
