Imagine, if you will, the aromas as you walk into an amazing butchery filled with fresh sausages, cured duck, pates, ham and more.  Now imagine if you could make those things yourself and amaze your guests with beautifully arranged charcuterie plates at your next gathering.  At ICC, you can learn elements of the craft of the charcutier, a trade that has been around for centuries. Don your own set chef’s whites, enter our professional kitchens and learn as chef-instructors share the techniques, tips and trade secrets that took them years to ascertain.

Getting a taste of life as a charcutier doesn’t have to take a big bite out of your schedule, however; by simply following our trademark Total ImmersionSM training method, you’ll be amazed by how much you’ll gain in just 15 class hours.


You’ll walk away with hands-on knowledge to make fresh-cured bacon, ham, fresh sausages, pâtés, pork rillettes and duck confit. Among the subjects discussed will be the traditions of charcuterie; an overview of pig anatomy and butchery; methods used to salt, smoke and cure meats; and techniques of working with seasonings, casings and more.
