Market Tours: Esposito's Pork Shop, Feeding Midtown Since 1932

New York Lauren Rothman 6 comments

In 1932, Ninth Avenue in Manhattan was something of an outdoor food mall, populated by butchers, fruit and vegetable stands, sweets shops and bakeries. Esposito's Pork Shop, at the corner of Ninth and 38th, has been a bustling neighborhood institution since it opened that year, and today is run by a third generation of Espositos. More

Bronx Eats: Fresh Sausages from Vincent's, Fordham-Belmont

New York Chris E. Crowley 1 comment

Vincent's make a sly slab bacon, if that's your thing. But me? I think bacon is easy. Sausages, in their many and myriad forms, can be just so much more delicious—even fresh ones. And Vincent's has some particularly tasty sausages, very much worthy of your turkey day table. More

A Sandwich a Day: Pulled Pork at the Knickerbocker Meat Market

New York Jessica Allen and Garrett Ziegler 1 comment

Each day, the pulled pork is slow-cooked, and the resulting sandwich, simple but tasty, offers a peppery bite in addition to the sweetness of the meat. Its super-moistness means you need to eat fast to avoid sogginess, but once you get a whiff, rapid gobbling won't be a problem. More

Video: Behind the Scenes at Lorentz Meats, a Processing Plant in Minnesota

Daniel Klein 2 comments

Lorentz Meats in Cannon Falls, Minnesota, is on the small side, but it's growing. The small-is-beautiful types think Lorentz is getting too big, but the company is touted as one of the most efficient, clean, and successful processing plants in Minnesota, and widely used by small farms. I visited the plant last year. Not wanting to delve too deep into the politics of meat processing, my approach was more focused on the actual butchering process. This episode is more of an informative music video. More

Hot Dog of the Week: Rolf's Pork Store in Albany, NY

Hot Dog of the Week Hawk Krall 11 comments

I first heard of Rolf's—an amazing German deli, butcher, and sausage shop in Albany, New York—while reading up on the history of mini hot dogs in nearby Troy, and made sure to stop by the next time I was in the hood. Just last week dmcavanagh also mentioned that Rolf's makes a fine Ring Bologna which got me thinking—it was about time to start drawing weisswurst and cartoon pigs. More

Dario Cecchini, The Famed Butcher of Panzano

New York Jenny Lee-Adrian 7 comments

Dario Cecchini, perhaps the most famous butcher in Italy, grinned like a little boy as he held onto a huge hindquarter of a cow. "Most people think of beef as a fillet," Cecchini said in Italian as writer Faith Willinger translated his words. "You need to think about everything." Watch him take apart a huge hunk of cow. More

Butchery Demo: Dickson's Farmstand Meats

BigGayIceCreamTruck 12 comments

More and more meat purveyors are offering seminars where you can watch beef butchering in action. It makes sense—they're going to be carving regardless, so why not let us watch? Plus, it's a pretty weird way to spend an afternoon. We recently went to a butchery demo at Dickson's Farmstand Meats in Manhattan with owner Jake Dickson and butcher Adam Tiberio. More

Money-Saving Tips from 'Confessions of a Butcher'

Adam Kuban 4 comments

Get Rich Slowly reviews Confessions of a Butcher, which sounds like a great book to consult if you want to save money on grocery bills. It's packed with insider info: "In a blue-collar meat and potatoes kind of neighborhood, lamb is not a regular part of the diet, but the local supermarket still has to carry a lamb lineup. In these types of stores, you may find legs of lamb and the like reduced to sell."... More

Noise Complaint Charges Dropped Against Singing Butcher of London

Adam Kuban 4 comments

BBC News Charges have been dropped against Brian Clapton, an East London butcher whose early morning singing and meat-chopping prompted complaints from the tenant in the apartment above Clapton's shop. As Clapton tells BBC News: "I'll continue to sing and carry out my business. I can get by in the credit crunch." In response to the news, BBC Radio 6 Music will be playing a block of meat- and butcher-related songs at 6 p.m. London time, which is about an hour from now.
