Ihsan and Valerie work to share the market-experience that inspired their mutual love of food with the neighborhoods and communities surrounding their stores in Cambridge, Boston and New York.
Julie makes a variety of fresh, cured and cooked charcuterie for our shop. We sell them throughout the year, but her recipes vary as the seasons change. We sell her bacon, pancetta, fresh sausages, rillettes and pates along with a number of other specialty items.
On Wednesday evening, I had the good fortune to be able to sit in on a pig butchering demo here at the shop. The demo was conducted by Julie, our in-house charcutière, and Jason, the chef at our South End location. What a pair they made!
