1. What makes meat from Rare Gourmet Meats so special?
Raising animals in a more natural and humane manner is not just the right thing to do; it is good business as well. Well-raised animals are healthier, heartier animals and provide us with meats that are not only better for our health but better tasting as well. And at the end of the day, if Shelly and I do not provide you with the best piece of meat you have ever had, we will not stay in business, and so it should be.
Buying right is only one step in the process of selling the best meats. Meat maintenance is step two. This is the process of storing, aging (temperature, humidity and exposure to air, are all factors in properly wet and dry aging meats), selecting, cutting and packing of meats. ALL impact quality and flavor. Meat maintenance is an art, an age old tradition of practices that is as important to the end product (putting the best tasting meat on your plate) as how the animals are raised.
Rare meats are procured and maintained by a well known and established wholesale meat purveyor, Rocker Bros Meat & Provisions, which happens to be Debbie’s family’s meat company. Rocker Bros Meat Company has been in the business of providing fine meats to professional chefs for over 50 years. Debbie has worked for the family meat business for many years.“I do consider myself a meat expert, I have been inspired and trained by the best in both worlds – the meat business and professional culinary arts.
Rare Gourmet Meats customers have access to the same meats I sell (wholesale) to my best chefs. Orders are cut and packed the day of, or the day before shipping, then vacuum sealed for proper storage in the refrigerator or freezer.
