I’ve got a couple of great events lined up for October. Click on the bold text to learn more and to buy tickets:

A Day of Artisan Beef Butchery at Soul Food Farm: Avedano’s Butcher Shop in San Francisco and Agricola Grass Feed Beef Ranch in Dixon come together for a second year to honor the work of Master Butchers and the beauty of grassfeed local beef. The event will be held on Oct. 15th from 1 to 5 p.m at Soul Food Farm. The day will begin with top Bay Area chefs cooking half of the aged beef and John Fink of the Whole Beast grilling and talking about open fire cooking. At 3 p.m. master butchers will demonstrate how to break down a steer describing both American cuts and Italian cuts. The demo will be followed by a raffle of the cuts of beef. This event is held each year as a fund raiser to support local farms and agricultural projects in the Bay Area.
