The JBF Culinary Labs, in partnership with Chefs Collaborative, are a new initiative offering culinary professionals the chance to develop a better understanding of the local, national, and global food systems, explore more sustainable ingredients and new preparations, and grow their network within America’s culinary industry. The topics of our labs are chosen to complement the Foundation’s work at its annual Food Conference which highlights the most pressing issues facing our country’s food system today.

The JBF Culinary Lab: Beef Breakdown will take place at Fleisher’s Red Hook in the Liberty Warehouse building at Pier 41 in Brooklyn. This exclusive event will include an in-depth Q&A with a local beef producer, a carcass breakdown demo, and a tasting.

At this event, you will learn how to evaluate a side of beef, basic butchery, ideas for unfamiliar cuts, menu planning tips and tricks, and more.
