If you were on the fence about that $100 lamb-butchering class at Dickson’s Farmstand Meats, this should entice you to bone up on your cleaving knowledge once and for all: On January 22 and 29, Shanna Pacifico of Back Forty (no stranger to butchery) will conduct a lamb-butchering demo that’s followed by a four-course, family-style dinner. The price tag is $130 — relatively modest considering it includes dishes like Lamb Kibbe Tartare, Smoked Lamb Croquettes, and Ancho Pepper Roasted Lamb Shoulder. Call 212-388-1990 to reserve your slot for the demo (3:30 p.m.-6 p.m.) and feast (6 p.m.-8 p.m.)
