The course commenced recently with a lesson from Georgio on the characteristics of quality Irish beef, highlighting Ireland’s grass-based production system, quality assurance scheme and other characteristics such as appearance and colour.

Future classes will see Giorgio demonstrating how to prepare raw beef dishes such as Carpaccio and tartar using premium quality Irish beef. The venue for the course is his butcher shop in Via Spallazani in Milan where Georgio’s family has generations of history in the meat business.
