I spent all my time learning under Bob Del Grosso , who is an absolute badass in the kitchen and taught me so much over the years, and whom I consider a good friend and knower of all things fun with food, while working at Hendricks Farm and Dairy. Trent Hendricks makes amazing cheeses, has a beautiful low impact and integrated farm and is just an all around encyclopedia of farming and agriculture.
The idea is to make the following first:
- Pancetta Piana
- Cured Duck Breast
These items require basic curing in the fridge, and little to no grinding or stuffing equipment.
The next stop, find a fridge on Craigslist and order me some modification equipment…
