What did the Romans do for us? Quite a lot actually. Rumour has it they brought curing to Britain, and the Italians and Spanish also make fantastic sausages. Join Humble by Nature’s charcuterie expert Graham Waddington and uncover the secrets to making this delicious food yourself. This course focuses on charcuterie from Southern Europe: chorizo, salcicce fresco, cotechino and pancetta.

Learn how to make common culinary delights such as chorizo, cured and matured sausages. We strongly associate this region with hot summer sun, basking on beaches and indulging in meaty snacky delights found within cafe culture. This course certainly satisfies some of these sunny reminiscences. You’ll also discover some great winter warmers, including preparation and cooking of porcetta.

Graham is the master charcutier and founder of Native Breeds.
