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

There are some nights when only pasta will do

There are some nights when only pasta will do. The sauce: onion, fennel, purple carrot, garlic and a slice of our nitrate-free bacon to get things started. Chopped Dully gourmet pork sausages, bay leaf, thyme, a tin of tomatoes and a cup of Hunter Valley semillon. Simmered for an hour until reduced. The pasta was Girolomoni organic spelt. A splash of unfiltered olive oil and parmigiano reggiano to finish. #dulwichillgourmetmeats #organicspelt #pasta #olionuovo
