Another Display of Butchery and Upscale Eats, This Time in Napa
Yet another butcher-chef-fire event (this one called Primal) is happening Saturday in Napa -- observe the breakdown of a pig, a goat, a cow, and a lamb, and taste the results. Incanto's Chris Cosentino, Perbacco's Staffan Terje, Fatted Calf's Taylor Boetticher, 4505 Meats' Ryan Farr, and Ubuntu's Jeremy Fox will all celebrate the art of butchery and heritage breeds at an outdoor party at Chase Cellars at Hayne Vineyard (2252 Sulphur Springs at Crane, St. Helena). Butchers from Avedano's and Star Meats Berkeley will also be wielding their cleavers and manning the fires; heritage meats and produce from Hudson Ranch are under the knife. Boutique wines and craft beers. Tickets are $65 for general admission, $100 for VIPs. The higher ticket price gets you in an hour earlier, premium wines, cocktails from Daniel Hyatt of The Alembic, and special tasty nibbles. The event's from 3-7 p.m. Buy tix online.
