Do you feel stressed out trying to decide what meat to cook for Christmas like apparently 3/4 of the English? If so, there is a little help from Britain's Q Guild of Butchers...
Ready for even better news!?
You don't have to fly to England to get the help you're looking for here in Western North Carolina - since the opening of The Chop Shop Butchery on Merrimon Avenue.
I realize this sounds like a commercial but rest assured no money has changed hands not even a free slice of their now famous in house smoked bacon!
As a matter of fact, the Merrimon strip is the new must stop area for any special food and wine event you may be planning. Don't get me wrong - there are a ton of great places to go in Asheville. We're blessed with many wonderful independent shops to patronize. Its just that its so handy when you have these four shops sitting on the same block.
The Chop Shop Butchery is only the most recent addition. First came City Bakery offering us fresh bread and pastries and more. Then came The Wine Studio bringing us more than another excellent wine shop but also the passion for education flowing from the owner Jessica Gualano. Next arrived Blue Water Seafood Company and our source for fresh seafood.
So now you know and can feel more confident than most of England.
Happy Christmas !
