Creative Sausage Making was developed by the processed meats experts at Texas A&M AgriLife after numerous requests for a basic sausage course that would allow a “first timer” to be successful, or a “seasoned” veteran to pick up some new tips. The hands-on workshop will engage participants in important aspects of sausage making from meat selection, ingredients, casings, stuffing, equipment, processing and final finished product. Participants will manufacture their own sausages (smoked and fresh) and have an opportunity to take some home for further evaluation. This workshop is for those who wish to increase their knowledge and/or gain experience in sausage making. Whether you want to introduce a line of sausage products for your restaurant, or make your own sausage for tailgating parties, this course will help you understand the art and science of sausage making. The class will be held at the Rosenthal Meat Science Center on the A&M campus. Registration is $350 for the 2-day class if you register before January 7th. Cost is $400 after that. There is a group rate at the Aloft College Station hotel for $95/night. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration can be done online at agriliferegister.tamu.edu.
