Carving with Confidence

There's a long running joke in our house that my Mum could make a whole chicken feed two people, possibly three at a push,  because of her less than stellar carving skills.  I digress.  Poulet Bonne Femme owners Gavin & Sara have realised that there's loads of people who couldn't carve a roast to save their life so they've launched a programme of carving masterclasses at Salt Cafe, Avoca, Monkstown, Co. Dublin.

There's three different dates available so you can ramp up your knowledge or be cheeky and gift a class to somebody you love who needs a bit of help - Tuesday 10th November, Tuesday 2nd December and a New Year class on Tuesday 19th January.  It's from 19.00 - 21.30 and you'll be taught step by step how to prepare for each meal including what cuts of meat to buy, how to sharpen and store carving knives, carving techniques, leftovers tips and even a classic gravy recipe.  I still hold a grudge against Ru for throwing my perfect Christmas gravy down the sink one year.  It was a thing of beauty...

As it's a fully interactive masterclass, you get to participate and hone your skills. When you collapse exhausted into your seat, there's a chance to enjoy the fruits of your labour with wine from 64 Wine and delectable side dishes by PBF's head chef Dave Brennan.  Tickets cost €125 per person and include a great gift bag with PBF recipe cards, an Avoca cookbook and a PBF apron and chopping board.

For more info or to make a booking, visit Poulet Bonne Femme online.  Follow them on Facebook and Twitter or call to see them in Avoca stores in Kilmac, Monkstown, Rathcoole or Suffolk Street.  And bring me back a sandwich - rib of beef with loads of horseradish.
