Arthouse videos and Italian sausages

By seekay 8 April 2008 23

I know Canberrans like to talk about their general level of education, culture etc… so is there a video library anywhere in the ACT that offers arthouse, classic cinema and foreign language fare, not just your standard Blockbuster dross?

And as a long term visitor to Canberra but only a recent visitor, where are all the decent butchers shops here? The Fyshwick markets have good fruit and OK seafood, but don’t inspire this meat eater. Does anyone do good Italian pork sausages or will I be driving up to Sydney for supplies.

What’s Your opinion?

Best italian sausage i’ve tasted for a while was at Fyshwick markets on the weekend at the game/chicken shop. Good crisp bite, coarse particle composition and excellent balance of black pepper, fennel and red wine flavours. Sorry for the wanky descriptions but just returned from a meat technology seminar!
Alan @ Southland’s Italian is good too but a bit too peppery for my liking.
Bottom line with butchers is unless you want something to casserole/stew, then you get what you pay for.

Yeah, went to the Griffith Butchery to order an organic fresh bird for Xmas dinner… was there 2 weeks before xmas, and they wouldn’t take an order! Tried to convince me that the frozen birds in the freezer were just as good.

We got a nice fresh one from the mob at Fyshwick markets, who have free-range stuff.

Quickflix, heck I should have remembered that, I get a couple of DVDs in my letterbox every week from them! Huge range. I got all of the Blakes 7 series from them, about to watch I Claudius. And they have tons of movies, lots of old ones too.

They even have “arthouse” in their genre listings.

The Post Office/Video Hire place at Hughes shops has a pretty good selection of arthouse stuff for rental.
