Tour of Burgundy Pasture Beef/Sausage Making Demo

I am so excited about our March Slow Food Dallas event!

Burgundy Pasture Beef has invited us to join them at their ranch for a farm tour Saturday, March 27th, at 2:30 p.m. After the tour we will return to the farm store for a sausage making demonstration with chef David Uygur. He will be making a sweet Italian sausage and each class participant will have a pound of links to take home, cook and sample.

This event is limited to 30 people and tickets will be available soon through brown paper tickets.

Look for more information on the event in an upcoming e-vite, and be sure to contact us if you need to update your e-mail address.
