Nothing says autumn in New York like crisp temperatures, falling leaves and…chicken beheading? That’s right, Park Slope, if you’re traveling up to New Paltz this October for some tasty apples, why not plan on attending the “For Cluck’s Sake” workshop sponsored by Fleisher’s butchers on October 28?  Brokelyn reports that:

Participants will meet at Fleisher’s in Kingston for a light breakfast, followed by a trip to Meadowview Farm in New Paltz where they will have the opportunity to slaughter and de-feather their own chicken! … Participants will learn how to quarter, spatchcock, and skin a chicken for home kitchen use. All followed by a locally sourced dinner prepared by the Fleisher’s crew … Cost is $300 and includes 3 meals, lecture with Joshua Applestone, and a chicken to slaughter and take home!

Although slaughtering poultry is way out of this DIY maven’s league, I’m sure there is someone out there in the Slope who is ready to take out Chicken Little and his gang. If so, give Fleisher’s a ring at (845) 338-6666 to register or email anna@fleishers.com for more information.
