My mentoring started soon after attending the CIA in NY I feel it's important the share knowledge. Iam always learning a
the average consumer has very little knowledge of what they eat. I've enjoyed meeting farmers learning from them what they offer as far as quality health benefits etc. it was my intention to follow up with my farmers to make sure what they said about their animals diets were true. I visited each farm unannounced to investigate their advertising.
My staff was then educated about our products.
I've found working with employees with past culinary experience is a good start. They understand sanitation which is # 1 concern in any butcher shop environment. They have fundamentals down how to hold a knife, put on an apron, first in first out rotation, don't get burned or cut yourself, etc.
I follow the American Chefs Association events online I have collegues either who were instructors at the CIA or fellow alumni are actively representing their employer in events.

Is this knowledge your seeking for your job or personal use.
Do you see any limitations that keep you from hand cutting your own meats.
