A Cut Above

The growing respect for quality ingredients reached new heights when Pat La Frieda achieved guru status. The third-generation butcher, dubbed “Manhattan’s leading meat authority” by La Scuola at Eataly, will expound on the merits of animal protein in Pat La Frieda Talks Meat ($175), a class at the educational arm of Mario Batali’semporium. La Frieda will wield his cleaver while students feast on dishes of roast pork, lamb chops, beef crudo, and veal saltimbocca prepared by Eataly chefs. La Frieda’s class will be offered on the evening of June 28. (www.regonline.com/Register/Checkin.aspx?EventID=948573)
