Alice apprenticed under butcher Cole Ward for a story three years ago. Now the meat cutter has the first-ever butchering DVD series, "The Gourmet Butcher." He and Alice join his co-star chef Courtney Contos in cooking salt-crusted beef tenderloin in a flaming paper bag.

If you've recently started buying shares in whole animals from local farmers, curing your own prosciutto or cooking with offal, the Gourmet Butcher DVDs are for you.
And for the latest in home entertainment –- butchery! No, seriously, there's something artistic about the way a good butcher works, and Cole Ward, whose new "The Gourmet Butcher … From Farm to Table" has just been released, is certainly a very good butcher.
Tuesday was a very packed day for us. In addition to town meeting we had been invited to the launch event sponsored by the Lamoille Region Chamber of Commerce for master butcher Cole Ward's Gourmet Butcher DVD series at Michael's on the Hill restaurant in Waterbury, Vermont.
