Our butcher classes are excellent evenings and can be given as a gift or organised for a group of friends or colleagues. All students (a maximum of 4 per class) are provided with a butcher’s coat, chain mail glove, appropriate knives and equipment and work with our master butcher around the central table in the shop, each from their own block. The classes last for 2 hours (approximately) from 7pm and are very hands on with lots of opportunity to ask questions.
Our Master Butcher will work with you to prepare a variety of classic cuts and you'll leave with the skills to impress your family and friends from your own kitchen! You’ll bone, trim, roll tie and cut a half lamb saddle, prepare a whole chicken to sauté, bone, score, roll tie and cut for spare ribs a kilo of pork belly and prepare an oxtail for braising.
All meat worked on for the evening will be yours to take home along with recipes and a bottle of wine from our wine shop to match the meat. If you would like to buy a gift for someone but are unsure of the date, why not buy one of our butchery class gift vouchers?

What customers say about the butchery classes at the Hampstead Butcher & Providore
I wanted to drop you a line to say what an enjoyable time I had on the butchers course on Tuesday night - and to ask you to once again pass on my thanks to your Head Butcher for making it a great educational, relaxing and entertaining experience. I slow roasted the lamb noisette for the family last night and felt like a decent cook for once. I’ll be sure to recommend the course to friends and will perhaps come back for the sausage lesson myself one day.Hampstead resident, February 2020
I would just like to thank your butcher for hosting the butcher's course at your Muswell Hill shop last night. I had a fantastic evening and I enjoyed every minute.Muswell Hill resident, February 2020
Just a little note to say how much I enjoyed the Butchery Course in Hampstead last night. Your butcher was absolutely brilliant. Funny, entertaining, helpful and extremely knowledgeable – a real highlight. The group was the perfect size, the environment was perfect too. Value was excellent too.Hampstead resident, December 2019
I just wanted to say a huge thanks to your butcher for the excellent butchery class that he taught last night. I had a great time and left with some (actually lots!) of the nicest looking meat I've had in a while - I'm just about to put the oxtail in the oven. I feel like I learned a lot and had a lot of fun - I would definitely recommend it to others. Thanks again.Hampstead resident, March 2019
