Today’s review is on Specialty Meats & Gourmet, a family owned company located in Hudson, WI, an eastern suburb of the Twin Cities Metro area of St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN.
The best source around for specialty meats and gourmet items: Artisan Cheeses, Charcuterie, Chocolate/Sweets, Cook Books, Domestic Meats, Exotic Meats, Game Meats, Jams/Jellies/Honey, Salsas, Rubs/Sauces, Smoke House Meats, Smoking Woods and Syrups/Mixes. These items are served in some of the finest restaurants throughout the nation and you can have them delivered right to your home.
I spoke with Linda Janse “Meat & Cheese Communications Liaison” and she was kind enough to give me a tour and fill me in on all the hot items to try.
Specialty Meats & Gourmet only deal with the smaller, specialty suppliers and producers in the business. Their suppliers include individual farmers and smaller distributors. The items that you will find in the store and on the website are not usually found in grocery outlets or your average restaurant.
Selling everything from Alligator to Yak. Today we decided to try Kangaroo, Python, Duck Sausage with Bacon and Jalapeno, Goat Salami and Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Salsa. Check out our video to see what we thought of our picks.
Each employee at the store has a great job title: Steve Loppnow is “The Meat Detective”, David Hara is “Taste-Bud Technician and Maria Heineman is “Shipping Specialist & Kangaroo Wrangler.” You can follow Specialty Meats & Gourmet on Facebook to see new items that they carry.
