The protein

The protein: Tallabung pasture-raised pork tenderloin fillet, wrapped in prosciutto with fresh sage. The salad: apple, radicchio, greens, walnuts and blue cheese with a zesty dressing of orange juice and peel, Dijon mustard, white wine vinegar and EV olive oil. #pork #pastureraised #dulwichillgourmetmeats #healthy

Here’s another pic taken in January at our longtime home, no. 483 Marrickville Rd. Did you know George’s dad bought the shop more than 30 years ago? It’s now been demolished but Sam and the boys from @timber_technicians are making us a shiny brand new shop, which we’ll fill with our full range of gourmet meat and smallgoods. #dulwichillgourmetmeats #marrickvilleroad #butchers #fourgenerations #nosetotail

Ever made #cheese at home? This is an easy one to start on. Ricotta actually means ‘re-cooked’ in Italian, but this simple version is done by adding two cups of cultured buttermilk to eight cups of milk and a teaspoon of sea salt. Heat slowly until almost boiling, then turn off the heat and keep in a warm place for 30 mins. A curd will form and you can use a slotted spoon to transfer the curd into jars. And that’s it! Can keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks, but ours never lasts more than a couple of days. The better the milk, the better the ricotta. We used @country_valley full cream, which we stock at the shop. #dulwichillgourmetmeats #homemade #ricotta #countryvalley #marrickvilleroad

Beef ribeye

Beef ribeye. Arguably the tastiest quick-cooking cut on the cow. We pan fried this with a ‘healthy’ amount of butter and a sprinkling of salt. #ribeye #grassfed #organic #steak #delicious #dulwichillgourmetmeats #marrickvilleroad

Thanks to Phillip @le_masurier for this pic. Pork belly with pomegranate molasses. As Philip said, so simple yet so tasty. Might have to cook on up ourselves some time this week! #dulwichillgourmetmeats #porkbelly #marrickvilleroad #tallabungpork #pastureraised
