Forget the greenbacks, socialists, and tea baggers: We’re card-toting members of the sausage party.
So when we learned about City Provisions’s new Meat Share program, naturally we were in full support. Starting March 18, Chicago’s inimitable eco-deli and catering company will offer biweekly pickups of sustainable proteins, selected by chef Cleetus Friedman and available solely through the meat club.
Options rotate over a ten-week period and might include humanely raised duck breasts from Indiana’s Gunthorp Farms, all-natural bison rib eyes from Pinn-Oak Ridge Farm in Wisconsin, and house-cured bacon. But there’s always a chance you’ll score farm-fresh cold cuts, organic charcuterie, and locally sourced pâté. Think of it as your very own meat grab bag.
Yeah, we totally flipped our Whigs, too.
