If you’re mad for meats or consider cured Italian sausage your calling, then have we got the event for you.
Foodie haven Banquet Food and Wine is hosting an educational sausage-making workshop with their skilled Master Butcher, Angelo Scarsella, who will be schooling guests on the traditional processes of sausage making, so you can really see where the sausage is made.
The Sausage Workshop will take a select group behind the scenes at Banquet on Saturday July 3 for a hands-on education in creating delicious savoury sausages that can be savoured for many meals to come.
Learning not only the complex, traditional process of creating flavoursome Cacciatore, guests will be seasoning the rustic style salami with Calabrese flavours of fennel, mild chilli, red wine and black pepper.
With sausage-making at the centre of Italian culture during the colder months, this is the perfect winter activity for any cured-meat or cooking enthusiasts who will work with the experts at Banquet Foods to create a batch of hearty Cacciatore using a safely guarded recipe, passed down through generations.
Meaning ‘hunter’ in Italian, Cacciatore originates from southern Italy, where hunters would pack this irresistibly more-ish salami on long trips to sustain them.
Kicking off at 1, guests will be treated to an afternoon of in-depth food education on everything from cut to cure, before sitting down to a well-earned late lunch at 4pm. Continuing the day’s celebration of all things pork, the menu will be a feast of antipasto, salumi, pasta al ragu and perfectly paired wines to complement each dish.
A true hidden gem, Banquet Food and Wine is a European marketplace, pizzeria and paninoteca that hosts regular educational foodie experiences including a sell-out Autumn Porcetta Lunch that formed part of the Adelaide Food Fringe. The venue also houses Don’s Eatery which serves delicious Italian fare throughout the week.
Guests will also take home a treat-filled gift bag from the workshop that includes 3kg of Cacciatore to put your new skills to the test and cure in the kitchen at home.
