Seattle Culinary Academy’s Chef Sarah Wong was featured in Modern Farmer: Going Whole Hog: 6 Meat Collectives Around the U.S.

“A meat class might have 10 or 11 students,” says Sarah Wong, a professional chef and cooking teacher who is one of three founders of the Seattle Meat Collective (website still in formation), “and an intern and I might start with a whole hog and break down half of it. Then it’s the students’ turn.” For their tuition, they learn meat-cutting and get to take home the remains of their lessons.

Seattle Chefs Collaborative’s 8th Farmer-Fish-Chef Connection held in partnership at Seattle Culinary Academy.

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

On Monday, February 24, 2014 over 300 members of the local chapter met at the “Innovators and Innovation” conference.  Since 2006 these events provide the largest direct marketing opportunity for local food producers and buyers to meet and network in the state of Washington.   The day started with a continental breakfast followed by a welcome from Zachary Lyons, President, Seattle Chefs Collaborative.   The key note address was a shared interview with Maxime Bilet, chef/owner Art of Food and Thierry Rautureau, chef/owner of Rover’s, Luc and Loulay Kitchen & Bar.  The day continued with morning breakout sessions, followed by lunch hosted in the One World dining room and afternoon breakout sessions.  Once the group came back together, they participated in a speed networking activity followed by closing remarks and a tasting & social hour.  The event was extremely successful and we are happy to have had the opportunity to work and partner with such an outstanding group.
