'The Most Interesting Man' was modeled after this man. I once witnessed him parallel park a train. He is the 'greatwhite hunter'. A very wise man but very eccentric. Women swoon, men gasp with awe when he enters the room. I am proud to call him my friend. When Ms. Goofy informed me that she could not go on our latest 'Meat Adventure' because she needed to rebuild the 'Racing Honda's 'bottom bracket afgan valve', the greatwhite hunter stepped to the plate. Our journey may have been slow, driven under the posted speed limit but it was fast with great meat finds.
Our first stop was to visit our good friend Angelo of Angelo's Meats in Petaluma California. It is always fun to visit our butcher friend. He was in good spirits. Angelo knew about our visit and baked us a sheet of some of the best focaccia ever. He made us sandwiches of roasted pork that was melt in your mouth tender. He also used some of his house made mustard to guild the lily. It does not get any better than this. We made some purchases before we left with full bellies and smiles on our faces.
Farmers Markets, Oyster companies and finally Willowside Meats was our journey. Willowside Meats sells some of the best aged beef that I have found. Today some spectacular aged New York steaks were bought. This is a beefy treat that I crave. When I cook these steaks, I pay very close attention to their cooking. Salt & pepper is the only seasoning.They are pulled at exactly 125 degrees and rested to insure a perfect medium rare. Ms. Goofy was a little jealous of our sandwiches at Angelo's but she was very happy with our steak dinner. Thanks to the 'greatwhite hunter for navigation and philosophy during our Meat Adventure. Til the next Meat Adventure.
