If you think a steak is just a steak. you’ve never bought from one of Sydney’s best butchers, and maybe it’s time you did.

The Price is Right

While supermarkets are all about everyday savings on key protein sources such as pork, beef and lamb, the quality of their meat products is often pretty moderate.

So if your boss is coming over for dinner, or it’s your first time cooking for the girl, quantity over quality isn’t an option.

If you’re smart about what you buy and how you cook it, meat from a boutique butcher will go a long way without burning a hole in your wallet.

There is one name that absolutely dominates the gourmet meat scene in Sydney – Victor Churchill.

Opened in 1876 by James Churchill, the Woollahra based emporium has the cream of the crop of just about every cut of meat that exists.

The shop itself is a stunning architectural achievement and is home to some of the most knowledgeable butchers in existence Рdefinitely worth a visit at the least.victor churchill gourmet butcher sydney
