THE BUTCHER’S BALL IS ABOUT MEAT -
THE CHEFS WHO LOVE IT AND THE RANCHERS WHO RAISE IT.
With a focus on sustainable ranching practices, The Butcher's Ball brings together Texas's top chefs, butchers, and ranchers for a day of demonstrations, discussions, tastings, and competition at one of the state's most beautiful spots,Rockin' Star Ranch in Brenham, TX.
But that's not all The Butcher's Ball is about - it's an incredible celebration of food, drink, music, and art, meant to shine a light on our local culinary and creative communities, bring awareness to sustainable farming and ranching practices, and raising funds for those farms and ranches that were affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Le Boucherie ("The Butchery") and La Matanza
("The Killing of a Pig") are the traditional French Cajun and Spanish rituals of killing and butchering a hog to feed a large crowd in one day.
Starting at 8am on the morning of The Butcher's Ball, Felix Florez (Black Hill Ranch / Ritual) will host Team Boucherie and Team Matanza, competing for the best hog breakdown and preparation. Ticket holders for Le Boucherie v La Matanza will get the incredible opportunity to "live like a chef" and assist with the preparations on either team - making for a fun, interactive addition to The Butcher's Ball.
