Join Foodways Texas and Salt & Time on February 21st for our inaugural Pork Shop, a pork workshop for home cooks interested in gaining a deeper knowledge of cuts, pork cookery, and breed history. The class will include instruction on basic pork butchery, methods for cooking less popular cuts, and basic recipes from the folks at Salt and Time.


While Texas may be known popularly as a beef state, pork has an equally long history within these borders. The phrases “from the rooter to the tooter” and “everything but the squeal” remind us of days when families gathered together during the winter to harvest every piece of their hog for food or other household purposes. We hope to bring a little bit of that spirit back with our first Pork Shop.
