Home Ec: The Chicken Course
Come spend an afternoon with Alexis Koefoed of Soul Food Farm and Chef Samin Nosrat for a hands-on butchering and cooking class.
In the first half-hour, Alexis will describe her chicken husbandry practices at Soul Food Farm, where she raises exquisite pastured chickens for some of the Bay Area's finest restaurants, including Chez Panisse, Camino, Coi and Frances. She'll talk about how she got into the chicken and egg business, as well as answer any questions you might have about backyard birds.
Next, we'll move into the kitchen where Samin will show you the ins and outs of butchering a chicken, including how to truss it for roasting. In 2008, Diablo Magazine called Samin's technique for spit-roasting chicken "masterful," and she will share with you all of her tips on roasting, spit-roasting and frying up delicious chicken every single time. You'll also receive a recipe book with tips on making stock, brodo and a few simple chicken dishes.
The class will end with some hands-on work: each student will receive a Soul Food Farm pastured chicken to break down into primal cuts under Samin's guidance.
You'll leave empowered and encouraged to start buying whole chickens at the market, knowing how to economically and deliciously use every part of the bird!
