Learn About Butchering and Charcuterie with Matt Levere

About Matt Levere

Matt Levere has been a butcher since 2009, after completing an apprenticeship at the University of Arizona Meat Science and Agricultural Lab in Tucson, Arizona. He spent 40 hours per week for six months learning not only how to slaughter animals humanely, but also how to utilize the whole carcass. ​Since then he’s worked in Arizona, Wyoming, Virginia, Washington D.C, Maryland, Massachusetts, England, and Italy, learning from the best chefs and butchers he could find. Tune in to the podcast if you want to learn about butchering and charcuterie.
