"Macellaio’s butchery class is a fantastic way to spend an evening. Upstairs in the Union Street restaurant executive chef Matteo and head butcher Lello told us about the enormous cuts of meat laid out on butchers’ blocks, the wisdom of hanging beef, how to prepare and cook it. We learned about the cattle and the Italian farm where the local community is involved in the care and welfare that results in such superb beef. In the background, bread was being made. Afterwards, we were treated to a spectacular meal. Thank you so much – it was all so interesting and so delicious!” (Elaine)
