Happy Mother’s Day from The Meat House (Giveaway!)

2012-04-10_17-26-18_759

When I was first introduced to The Meat House, I envisioned a butcher shop where I’d pick out choice cuts of meat under the guidance of an expert butcher. That’s not quite how things went down.

I was greeted with some of the highlighted items of the day, including samples. In case you can’t tell, this is a lovely assortment of fresh-baked biscotti. There were plenty of other samples scattered around the store. Dangerous.

The Meat House carries an array of imported items, including these gorgeous beverages. You’ll see later that I just couldn’t resist the French Lorina Pink Citrus Lemonade. And, although it’s ridiculously pricey, I will be stocking up on a few bottles when I return. For special occasions, of course. They also have pastas and other items from around the world.

Despite the appeal of the imported goodies, I was even more impressed by their support of local businesses. As you can see, they stock a wide assortment of Stonewall Kitchen items. They also have some cookies from Dancing Deer. But I was most excited about the treats from even smaller local bakeries, one of which is nut-free. Yay! The Meat House carries plenty of gluten free and sugar-free items, too.

Now, as fun as the desserts are, this is really a shop for those who love to cook. Here you can see the Borsari seasonings. The Meat House carries an assortment of sea salts, some beautiful vegetables, fresh-baked breads, condiments, spreads, and, of course, plenty of meats. I opted for their special Maple Bourbon marinated steak tips, which were just as delicious as the name suggests.

Here’s my final haul and every bit of it was delightful. I definitely want more of the tips, the Lorina soda, and that Mitchell’s Buffalo Dip I picked up for my husband, but ended up devouring with pita chips. I will admit that the items are pricier than you’d pay in a regular store, but you do pay a premium for gourmet items. Hopefully my Buffalo Dip and Pink Citrus Lemonade addictions won’t end in financial ruin!

Right about now, you’re probably drooling, or jealous, or both. Don’t worry. I’m not that mean. The Meat House wants to give one of my readers a special Mother’s Day Gift – a $75 gift card! The Meat House is located primarily in the Northeast US, but has some other locations as well. Please take a moment to make sure they’re close enough to you.

Ready to enter? Leave me a comment and let me know what item you think you’d HAVE to buy (don’t forget to enter on the widget). You can see more of their standard products on their website if you want to daydream about spending your $75 gift card. Keep in mind that because so many of their items are locally sourced, you may find a different selection in your local shop than I found in mine.

    I’ve gone there for sausage and bratwurst, which I always have trouble finding in Boston. But along with that I’d have to go with some nice steaks. Fire up the grill!
