Chicken Preparation Masterclass @ Kirkgate

Cluck & craft is more than just a workshop, it offers a deeper appreciation for the versatility of chicken as an ingredient, as we aim to show just how much you can create with just one whole chicken. Using every inch of this fabulous bird we will take you through butchery to preparation, minimising waste whilst maximising flavour.

Workshop Roadmap

·        Butcher the whole chicken – Break down your whole chicken, separating the breasts, wings, drumsticks, thighs and let’s not forget the oysters.

·        Chicken stock – Make a blonde chicken stock ready for sauces, soups or even a velouté.

·        Crispy butterfly chicken legs – Butterfly chicken legs with beer glaze.

·        Salt & pepper Chicken wings – recreate that Chinese takeaway classic.

·        Chicken saltimbocca – Roman classic chicken. Breast wrapped in prosciutto and sage, pan fried with buttery sauce.

·        Honey & soy baked chicken thigh – creating a simple but delicious honey soy marinade, you bake the thigh to create a succulent addition to any menu.

All the session’s recipes are provided for you to take home to add to your personal repertoire so you can keep on cooking them time and time again.
