Thank you for your interest in our event.
It will be taught by Christoph Wiesner and his wife, Isabel. Christoph is the President of the Austrian Mangalitsa Breeders’ Association. He makes his living breeding, fattening, and curing Mangalitsa pigs. Christoph has been trained by Austria’s best butcher, Marcel Kropf, in slaughter and seam butchery. Seam butchery comes from Continental Europe. It is a way of breaking down carcasses that minimizes cutting through muscles. You use special tools and techniques to get all the meat off the bones and maximize the value of the carcass. Please look at the videos, where Christoph shows how to do it -that’s what you’ll learn.
This is a one of a kind class that is not available in the US. Short of going to Austria, you won’t get this kind of instruction.
3 day classes, all CLASSES are hands on. Christoph will demonstate and then supervise the students as they do it themselves. By the time you finish the course, you’ll know how to slaughter, eviscerate, butcher and cure your own Mangalitsa.
Day one will be at Mosefund farm. Christoph will demonstrate on a Mangalitsa. Then you’ll slaughter, scald, gut and split yours – under Christoph’s supervision.
Day two will be about how to clean and cook all organs. Heart, liver,
lung, kidney, heads and feet.
Day three will be about seam butchering, cutting, curing and making products. Christoph will demonstrate the cutting (as in the videos). Then you will cut the carcass, with Christoph supervising. Christoph will show you how he makes his cured products back in Austria.
2 meals will be provided each day. Mangalitsa of course.
