Runaway Boucherie Year Two 2015

Runaway Boucherie Year Two 2015

Once a year in the fall we host a gathering of butchers, chefs, farmers, and culinary artisans for a three day boucherie symposium. Those in attendance are invited for a hands on experience in the slaughter, butchering, and cooking of various proteins throughout the event. The final day is dedicated to the traditions of the Cajun boucherie led by butcher Toby Rodriguez and the Lache Pas Boucherie crew.
