Our old friend and long time customer, the food author John Newton, who once wrote that our caramelised beetroot and smoked chilli pork sausage was ‘good enough to seduce a vegetarian’, has just released his new book. It’s titled ‘The Oldest Foods on Earth’ and is all about produce that is native to Australia. Much more than just croc and roo!

Around this time last year we foraged for these babies in the Hampton State Forest. They’re lactarius deliciosus, or saffron milk caps, more commonly known as ‘pine mushrooms’. We made pork and mushroom sausages with them, but they’re also good simply sautéed with a squeeze of lemon on top. Mushrooming is a great day trip if you’re looking for something to do on an autumn weekend!

This pic was taken in January, on our last day at our beloved old shop at 483 Marrickville rd, which has been owned and run by our family since 1983. We’ve got a lot of memories there and we were a bit sad to see the old shop go. But the good news is we’ll be back on the premises in a few weeks with a slick new shopfront, thanks to Sam and the boys at @timber_technicians. In the meantime we’re just down the road at no. 499. Come in and say hi! #dulwichhillgourmetmeats #artisanbutchers #butchers #timbertek

Why wait til the weekend for a bacon and egg fry up? Especially when the smokey bacon is chemical nitrate-free and the eggs are free range goodies from Hazlewood Pastoral Co! Eggs were turned gently in a hot pan with a generous portion of Pepe Saya cultured butter. So simple, so delicious. Come into the store to stock up for the weekend! #baconandeggs #nitratefree #freerange #hazlewoodfarm #fryupthursday

Anyone a fan of osso buco? It’s one of our faves here at Dully gourmet meats, especially when the weather starts to get cooler. The words translate to ‘bone with a hole’, which is filled with tasty marrow. This one is a traditional Milanese style with no tomatoes, a tasty chicken broth and lots of white wine and grass fed butter. Perfect with a glass of Italian red. #ossobucco #slowcooked #dulwichhillgourmetmeats #ossobuco #vealshin #grassfed

Seen this? Necta has ‘snagged’ a spot on the Aussie team for the World Butchers’ Challenge! And he got a write up in the local paper and on the Daily Telegraph website. Nec is stoked and we’re all pretty excited to see him fulfil his potential and represent not only Australia but Dulwich Hill Gourmet Meats!
