Chef Brian Polcyn has trained under the masters of charcuterie in Europe and written numerous books on the craft.

You may know his name from his more than forty years experience at the helm of Metro Detroit establishments like Forest Grill and Five Lakes Grill. 

This weekend in Eastern Market, Chef Polcyn will teach a new generation of culinary students about the art of charcuterie.


Listen to him tell CultureShift’s Amanda LeClaire about how this long tradition is much more than a contemporary fad.
