Why you shouldn’t feel intimidated at a Butcher Shop.
It’s common to feel a little overwhelmed at the butcher’s counter. If you’re not a foodie or connoisseur then the choice can be a little much and the thought of asking for help can be quite intimidating. However there are a few ways to allay your fears and make your next trip to the butcher’s counter a less worrying and hopefully more enjoyable experience.
Preparation is Key
First of all, have a think about what you want before you go. At The Butcher’s Block we have a wide range of meats available for you to choose from, if you’re not sure of exactly what you want, it might be a little intimidating. If you’re cooking a specific recipe then look up the types of meat that could go well with it and do a bit of research on prices and quality. Then once you are there and ready to make a decision you can have a more informed conversation about the various choices available to you.
Don’t Be Afraid of Not Knowing
Another point to remember is that nobody starts off knowing everything about any given subject. We all have to start somewhere and it’s just a matter of practice and trial and error when finding the best pieces of meat. The more you cook and the more you shop, the more you will get to know what you like and what you need for various dishes.
