The Theatre of Butchery
So now I know where carnivores go to feast and vegetarians fear to tread. After reading Not Quite Nigella's post about this new gourmet butchery which has only be opened for about 3 weeks since 24 August 2009 I felt intrigued to check it out. The staff were very friendly and informative and obliging for me taking photos around the shop which had so many curious customers checking out the produce. For those who don't like cooking there are so many gourmet meaty options already prepared and ready to cook like the Lamb Loins with Spinach and Feta ($35.99/kg), Spring Lamb Navarin ($24.50) and Spatchcocks with Proscuitto ($12 each). Wagyu fans will find prices ranging from the Wagyu Beef Patties for $3 each up to the David Blackmore's Full Blood Wagyu for $169.99/kg. They also catered for the sweet tooth with the Chocolate Mousse with Candied Orange on display under the cameras for $7.40 each. Watching the skillful butchers behind the glass was like a theatre show as they chopped, sliced, dissected and prepared customers orders and produce for the displays — you've seen open kitchens, well now experience an open butchery.
