Chef Jesse DeLeon
We are offering a unique experience for steak lovers.
At Rosewood, we bring in half a cow once a month to fulfill our beef needs.
We utilize this cow in three major ways. We create barbacoa, tartar and dry-aged steaks.
We are offering a chance to join some knowledgeable butchers in processing the cow from beginning to end.
You will be taught how to breakdown the cow into usable pieces and explain how best to cook those cuts.
We will also put a bone in ribeye to dry age for you.
One month later, you and seven friends will be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
We will work with you to customize the menu with the finest local and seasonal ingredients,
and you will have a chance to help prep the items being served to your guests that night.
Some examples of what we could offer…
A selection of sausages and cured meats from your cow
Bourbon aged Beef tenderloin carpaccio
Dry aged prime rib with all the fixings
