  • March Meat Madness

    March Meat Madness

    Celebrate Meat Month At Food Dance all March Long

    We love meat! It's something to share and savor, and here in the midwest we feel pretty comfortable stating we are in the majority on this one. From the winter stews, roasts and braises to the summer grilled chops, steaks, burgers or ribs the traditional midwest plate is anchored by meat.

    Of course not all meats are equal in flavor, quality or impact. Here at Food Dance the sourcing and rearing of an animal is important, so we only serve meats from sustainably sourced and humanely raised animals. What does that mean? To us that means animals raised without the use of antibiotics or hormones, and animals raised with room to be, well, animals and not in confinement conditions. We could argue the social and environmental ills of using antibiotics, hormones and confinement and that would be enough to convince many. However food is more primal than that. Eating is about flavor, and you will never mistake it for a pork chop from a humanely raised animal. You would be able to see the difference in the rosy pink, marbling from one of Young Earth Farm’s heritage pigs. Then your tastebuds will certainly convince you.

    Join us for special classes and menu features — 

    To further help your personal meat celebration, we're offering four special events. A knife class, a butchering class and a sausage making class.

  • Butchering for the Home Cook
    Demo-Style Class

    Butchering for the Home Cook

    Thursday, March 9th, 6-8pm

    $75.00

    As a restaurant we have sourced the best local meat our area has to offer. It’s process of getting to know our local terrain and how the breeds will cook, grind and cure. All of this has led us to start a butchering and charcuterie program to bring back to the area old world flavor and technique of patience. We are butchering hogs, cow, chickens, lamb and crafting terrines, sausages, pate, and cured meat. In this class, Chef Brad McKenzie and our in-house butchers demonstrate butchering techniques for the home cook including with large and small cuts, whole chicken and more. 

    Each guest have a chance to butcher and will take home a delicious goodie bag

    Sausage Making Class
