Over the years, we’ve tried to perfect our smallgoods and while we have winning recipes for our ham, bacon and smoked turkey – continental smallgoods like kabanas and frankfurts have always remained elusive…


Quick Crumbed BBQ Lamb Rack

We’ve got a special Lamb Rack recipe for you this Australia Day – a little fancy, but super quick and easy nonetheless. We like to leave a little layer of fat on our Lamb Racks and this recipe uses a dry-crumb marinade so fat really helps the crumbs stick, plus the juices from the meat get absorbed into the crumb and none of the goodness is lost.

Our Pick: Ora King Salmon

Ora King may be a familiar name to you – but you’ve probably seen it gracing fine-dining menus – not shop windows. Ora King are a premium producer and only approach a handful of retailers who are guaranteed to do their salmon justice. In October this year they approached us about being our primary supplier of salmon.

The Story Behind the School

Sam sat down with WeTeachMe to discuss the rationale behind the Cannings School of Butchery. Part culinary adventure, part voyage into the belly of the beast, the curriculum was developed to give members of the public unprecedented access to see what goes behind the scenes at Cannings and gain a deeper understanding of where meat comes from. 

Balsamic Braised Lamb Shanks

Lamb shanks are an essential addition to any Winter cooking repertoire. Because this recipe is a slow-cook, the intensity is cooked out of the Balsamic, and the alcohol out of the the wine – resulting in a sweet and aromatic gravy that is absorbed right into the lamb. With minimal prep time, this is a great recipe to pop on in the afternoon to just let bubble away.
