I have no idea from whom I first heard about Toronto’s Carnivore Club, but all I remember is that the instant I heard about it, I ordered the box. And I had almost forgotten about it, that is until they sent me an e-mail advising me that my order was going to arrive this week. Carefully selected cured meats featuring artisans from around the world and delivered right to my door.
The Carnivore Club “loves artisans that purchase ethically treated animals, employ humane slaughtering practices, use locally sourced ingredients and have a passion for making exceptional products.” Each month’s box is themed around one producer specializing in a particular style of cured meats. We were meant to be together.
March’s box is salami and features eastern european creations from Barilo’s Fine Sausages located in Newmarket, Ontario: Zernistaya, Moskovskaya, Stolichnaya and Braunshweiskaya dry salami. Four full-bodied rolls of aged fat, pork, beef and brandy. Where’s my Davidoff? Someone bring me cognac and pickles, I’m celebrating the Carnivore Club way!
