Whether you’re a culinary star in the making, or someone who doesn’t know their cumin from their chorizo, Meatsmith has you covered. The part-deli, part-butcher, part-kitchenwares supplier is a one-stop shop for organic and rare breed meats, and pre-cooked cuts (hold the phone because they sell the Cumulus 8-hour lamb shoulder to go!).
Specialised ingredients are also on offer to draw out those sumptuous meaty flavours—including premium salts, oils and spices—as well as cookware that’ll at least make you look like you know what you’re doing, even if you don’t.
The new addition to Fitzroy is masterminded by Andrew McConnell, the chef behind Cumulus Inc., Supernormal, Luxembourg and a bevvy of other Melbourne institutions. While McConnell’s other ventures are perfect for those who want to eat out in style, Meatsmith caters to Melburnians who are looking to recreate incredible dishes at home.
With a fantastic abbreviated bottle shop on site, as well as staff who really know their stuff, you’ll find just about everything you need to cook up a storm for mates in this cracking find. All you need to do is perfect your fave recipes and provide the company!
