"About Philip Dennhardt

German-born Philip comes from a long line of butchers. He is a naturally modest man, and so when he first came to the school he made no mention of his considerable experience. This led to a very amusing moment when a member of our team started to teach him the rudiments of butchery. When it was Philip’s turn to demonstrate what he had been taught he rather surprised everyone by not just cutting up a couple of pork chops, but by completely butchering an entire carcass with the skill of a master surgeon. Anyway he is a ‘natural’, as they say." - Ballymaloe Cookery School

This course is also designed for those who would like to explore ways to add value to their meats products, with a view to developing an artisan food business.

A light lunch is included.
