The most important experience a chef can have…

Author and Butcher Adam Danforth is leading a field trip and butchering session at this year’s Sustainable Food Summit. We sat down with Adam to hear why humane animal slaughter is important and essential for chefs to understand, and the following is a guest post from Adam.

unnamed“The most significant experience a chef often has is the moment when you participate in the humane slaughter of an animal. It hits a hard reset on your appreciation for food.

Join me at the beginning of the Chefs Collaborative Sustainable Food Summit for Colorado Cut, a field trip to Boulder Lamb for a farm tour and humane slaughter on September 28.

Farm slaughter done the ideal way is the proper environment for showing the ultimate reverence for an animal you plan to eat. I’ve never had anyone be turned off by the process. They are amazed by how inoffensive it is. It is a revelation how calm, clean, and respectful it can be. You will want to use every bit of that animal as a sign of your respect.”
