Varitey Meats Class – In Review

The Eugene Chapter held a Variety Meats Class on May 18, 2013. This was our first time doing a class solely devoted to nutrient-dense organs and variety meats. We demonstrated and sampled recipes that included Thymus, Heart Gizzard, Kidney, Tongue and Liver.

The class was a great success! We ate wonderful food, and the feedback on our anonymous class survey form was 100% positive! Below are some quotes from our class attendees.

Please tell us what you thought of the class:




“Great. Lots of very good recipes

“It was a very organized and prepared class. It was a very interesting topic to learn for our health!”

“I thought it was wonderful. I did NOT expect to eat so well.”

“It was great! So inspiring. The food was very tasty.”

“It is very hard to choose one dish.”

“Thymus and soup”

“Everything, sweetbreads, heart & watermelon salad”

“Thymus, Heart Gizzard, Kidney, Tongue, Liver”

“There was nothing I wouldn’t eat again.”

“There are a lot of useful tips and information.”

“Potato, bacon & liver, kidney & onion in wine sauce, beef heart & watermelon salad, sweetbreads in coconut oil”

May 11: Variety Meats Class

Inexpensive vitamin and mineral supplements:
Variety meats and organs contain the richest concentration of vitamins and minerals of any foods.  They were considered sacred in many traditional cultures, and common in American recipe books a mere 3 to 4 generations ago.  Prized for their nutrient content, they were fed to pregnant women and growing children to ensure a healthy population.

Come learn what makes these foods valued by traditional people the world over. Sample and learn to make delicious meals that include Sweet Breads (thymus), Gizzards, Tongue, Heart, Liver and more!

If you have been curious to try them, but not ready to do it on your own, this is the class for you!
