Hoping to revive the culture of the neighborhood butcher shop, with its personalized service, attention to detail, and artful products, restaurant-industry veterans Justin Rosberg and Jason Parent took a gamble on their first New Hampshire butcher shop in 2003. Dubbed The Meat House, their store quickly earned a foodie following, spawning additional franchise locations across the country. Today, The Meat House?s Mission Viejo location stocks fine cheeses, prepared side dishes, other gourmet grocery items, and hundreds of wines alongside the usual selection of traditional and exotic meats. Butchers also explain how to prepare each hand-carved cut of meat, sharing recipes, best slicing practices, and cooking techniques for giving pork chops the flavor of justice.
Raymond and Clara Gerard came to Massachusetts in 1923 looking for a bit of land to call their own. They found a 13-acre property ideal for raising turkeys, and instantly made it into both their home and livelihood. For a while, bird-breeding business was good; by 1950, they were hatching over 190,000 birds. Ray even got to work with Cornell University to develop the standard Beltsville White turkey breed, now a staple of Thanksgiving tables around America. Slowly, though, business transitioned from raising turkeys to cooking them.
Today, the third ? and sometimes fourth ? generation of Gerards run the farm as a kitchen, preparing entire Thanksgiving meals for customers. They, of course, specialize in slow-roasted turkeys. They fill each bird with classic, bread-based stuffing, and even turn the leavings into a hearty gravy. They tend to get a lot of customers around the holidays, and recommend ordering in advance for special occasions.
