Invite your dad to try his hand at a little light butchery in these fun, relaxed and hands-on evening classes at our favorite London Butchers. He will learn more about where the meat he eats comes from and pick up a new skill – getting the most from each cut. A Fabulous Gift experience hosted by experienced and charming butchers. Plus, there’s a two course informal meal with wine included and your dad get’s to take the substantial joint he has butchered or plentiful sausages he has made to feast on at home.
