Continuing with its Taste Education Series, Slow Food Maui presents its eighth session: Poultry with Bobby Santos. Here is an opportunity to learn all there is to know about poultry, which is defined as:
- Domestic fowl in general, for example, chickens, turkeys, ducks, or geese, raised for meat or eggs
- 2. The meat of domestic fowl such as chickens and ducks.
Retired Maui Culinary Academy Chef Instructor Bobby Santos returns to the classroom to share his knowledge of raising chickens and other domestic fowl. Having grown up with chickens, ducks and pigeons, Santos knows, first-hand, how to care and raise domestic poultry. He is also an expert in poultry fabrication (butchering) and a practitioner of traditional food practices and culture.
Held on the last Wednesday of each month, the September session will take place on Wednesday, September 28, with a new format and schedule (see below). As always, the session will be held on the second floor in the Pāʻina Building, home of the Maui Culinary Academy.
