African Relish is excited to offer the opportunity to spend a weekend with charcutier Richard Bosman and be part of a master class in learning the ancient art of curing and preserving meat.

Richard Bosman will once again be conducting a series of basic lessons in various charcuterie techniques along with resident chef Gavin Memper. From pig to pot guests will begin the process with learning butchering techniques through to salting, smoking, drying and eating.

Richard Bosman’s Quality Cured Meats is committed to producing excellent cured meats using traditional methods. After five successful years running the Deli in Hermanus, owner Richard Bosman decided to set up a factory to produce Italian and Spanish style cured meats. With input from fleischmeister Walter Haller, the factory uses traditional salting and drying techniques to create something special and unique. The two most important ingredients in the process are the pork and time.

The company has developed a special relationship with pig farmer Charlie Crowther in the Hemel and Aarde valley outside Hermanus, cross breeding Duroc and Large White pigs raised free range supplementing their diet with acorns during the last month of their breeding. Due to their active lifestyle the quality and flavour of the meat is superior.
