Holiday Gift Guide: Local Pig
This gift idea is for the man or serious foodie in your life. The Local Pig is a Kansas City butcher shop that supplies only hormone, steroid and antibiotic free meats with most of the animals coming from this area.
On the weekends, they offer hands-on classes that teach you how to break down whole animals, make sausages or pates and even cut and truss an entire boneless turkey. If the idea of this is making you squirm, it's probably not the right gift for you, but I have some serious foodies in my life that I know would love this gift. I love the idea of gifting an experience, and I this one teaches you a great skill as well.
They also offer a service called Butcher Box, which is a subscription style (you know I love these!) service that supplies enough meat to your family to feed you for one or two weeks. Prices range from $50-75.
Local Pig is located at 2618 Guinotte Ave, Kansas City, MO 64120. To purchase tickets for their various classes, go to http://www.brownpapertickets.com/venue/140967.
