It wouldn't surprise anyone to admit how much we love France here at Meatsmith.
The French are world leaders in the treatment and techniques of many cuts and beasts - from rolling and stuffing poultry to elaborate pastries and grand roasts. We are using this inspiration to take our produce to the next level with a delectable range of trussed meats, pâtés and roasts ready for you.
For the month of July, we will have a range of grand France-inspired products available for pre-order in store and a hand-picked selection online - why not add a little bit of je ne sais quoi to your next meal!
