Sunday, July 26th,  2pm - 4pm 
(Greystone Mansion, Beverly HIlls)
Bacon Curing, Smoking & Infusing
$95 {includes ingredients, supplies and tastings} 

Rashida Purifoy, Los Angeles' premier bacon-ista, will guide us through each step in the bacon making process. We'll begin with a pork belly 101 lesson, including sourcing the best quality meat and a no-brainer discussion on food safety.

Next it's on to the good stuff – curing! We'll learn the differences between dry and wet curing with a hands-on choice of hand-crafted rubs, bourbon, maple syrup, citrus zest and more from the Institute Flavorbar™

Bacon isn't "bacon" without the smoke-factor, so we'll assemble a home smoker that magically works in your home oven.

A class isn't complete without a tasting and of course we'll taste a variety of Rashida's Cast Iron Gourmet bacon, but in addition, the Institute has a reputation to uphold and that means alcohol infusions. Can you say bacon-infused bourbon? Yes, we'll each make a batch to take home and steep. We'll also be sure to have some on hand already steeped for you to taste, as well as a toast to a class well done!
