Our Story

Discover better

My passion for exciting food has driven me to combine the best of traditional butchery with modern creativeness. Immersing myself in the butchery industry internationally as well as at home has given me the vision to make food exciting with new and innovative flavour combinations.  These experiences have sparked the desire to create refined modern food whilst still instilling core butchery values with every product meeting my high standards of excellence.
