Dario’s class

Dario Cecchini, the humble yet poignant butcher-come-chef, invites you to his small village of Panzano in Chianti. The Cecchini family roots run deep, through every cut and dish of this shop-turned-restaurant. Every meal is a special occasion in Italy’s most renowned butcher shop, which is now a worldwide sensation. Viewers follow Dario through a day in the life of running such an iconic place.

For meat lovers only. This thick cut works wonders on the grill. The key here is seasoning on the table after grilling, and topping with good extra-virgin olive.

This cut comes from the upper part of the back, cut nice and thick.

“To beef or not to beef”, that is the question.

Sometimes simplicity is the most beautiful thing. And what’s better than a lovely Italian filet?

An olive oil cake that’s both simple and sublime. All you need is olive oil, a splash of dessert wine, and an entire orange to make a cake that’s perfect for all reasons and all seasons.

Beef tartare, Dario's way. The red lean beef is tenderized and seasoned with extra-virgin olive oil, lemon, and spices. The result? Chianti Sushi.

This special salt is the Essence of Chianti. Learn how to bring intoxicating Italian flavor to your seasoning by adding rosemary, sage, and thyme. Use it on steaks, chicken, fish, salads, and dressings.

This lesson takes you behind the scenes in Dario’s “Butcher for a Day” class in Italy. Become one of Dario’s students too and watch as he teaches how to roast a beautiful lamb sirloin stuffed with bone marrow and showered of aromatic rosemary. He also shows how to make lardo, a decadent creamy, pork spread, best when smeared onto toast as a pre-dinner appetizer.

Dario Cecchini

“To beef, or not to beef? That is the question!” Many consider Dario Cecchini, the iconic eighth-generation butcher from Italy, to be the unofficial mayor of Panzano. Holding court daily in his red-and-white-striped butcher shop, the gregarious chef, host, and Chef’s Table star on Netflix has a passion for butchery that’s matched only by his love for animals – an unlikely combination that’s captured the curiosity of gourmands worldwide.

Dario's Story
Documentary | Inspirational | Panzano, Italy
Dario Cecchini’s Documentary Film
25 min

“We do not do this work for the money,” begins legendary Italian butcher, Dario Cecchini, and nothing has ever been more clear. The gregarious, eighth-generation butcher is never without a smile on his face as he holds court from sun-up through supper time in his red-and-white-striped butcher shop and kitchen in Panzano, Italy. In this introductory story, follow Dario through a day in the life, which includes the real deal business of butchery, and hosting dozens of visitors a day for cantina-style meals in his dining room. He talks about the dignified and joyous life cycle of his animals, and the craftsmanship his team applies to the end product. He explains the inspiration behind his butcher for a day program, and how to identify the perfect steak. The story ends with a family-style dinner, where t-bones get passed between strangers so everyone can gnaw on the scraps. From the outside, it looks like a very long day, but Dario insists “he’s never worked a day in his life.”
