Topic: Salt, Mold, and Time: Three Months As A Tuscan Norcino’s Apprentice

In January 2023 Trevor left his day job as a residential property manager in Seattle to live on a 1100 acre organic farm in rural Tuscany. With no professional butchery experience Trevor began his training under master norcino, Riccio Pigozzo. For the next three months Trevor studied and practiced butchering and curing culturally protected cinta senese pigs using 500 year old Tuscan methods and ingredients. Salt, Mold, and Time is a presentation about the history and impact of Italian salumi, the ethics of farm to table butchery, and how when nothing else makes sense, sometimes the only sane thing to do is throw your life in the air and say “aah”.
