Sitting in an east London restaurant recently, we noticed a new, but traditional-looking butcher’s shop had opened over the road. Was this a good time to be opening a new business, we wondered? As we watched a trickle of people turn into a flood, packing the shop, it appeared so. Perhaps it is – in uncertain times such as these – reassuring to go into a shop that harks back to a simpler time, when you knew the butcher, who knew the farmer, who knew each of his flock/herd individually.
Anyway, it seems the East End Sausage Co. are not the only ones: Marlow & Daughters has set up a traditional butcher’s in Brooklyn, USA. In this video, Tom Mylan explains his philosophy. Reminds me a little of the Ace of Cakes.
