Ten years ago, before eating “organic” and “sustainable” meat was the cool thing to do, Grant Hilliard founded Feather and Bone, a butchery in Sydney with the sole purpose of sourcing and selling the highest quality whole meats in the country.
Over the years, Feather and Bone has developed a stellar reputation – becoming known by restaurateurs all over the country as one of the leading sources of the highest quality meats.
All produce and animals sourced by Grant and his team are subject to an incredibly strict process, including ensuring that they are traceable to farms with transparent breeding and culling practices, chemical and hormone-free, raised on (or with easy access to) quality pasture, fed appropriately and more.
And with all of this experience sourcing and distributing organic and ethically-produced meats, Grant has developed a true understanding of the right way to cook and enjoy them.
This weekend Canberrans are in for a rare treat as Grant Hilliard joins with Pialligo Estate to offer a Masterclass and five course lunch with a focus on learning about, cooking and enjoying the best Feather and Bone has to offer.
The Masterclass, which runs this Saturday from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, will provide guests with a lesson on butchery and sustainable production, cooking tips, delicious tastes of different cooked cuts, selected beverages, bespoke Pialligo Estate recipes for home cooking, and a fresh cut of lamb.
The Sunday lunch starts at 1:00pm and offers five courses of decadence, including cured meats, carpaccio of mutton and local olives, rillettes, pate and smoked meats, chargrilled quail, roasted porchetta, salty crackling and more.
The RiotACT has secured a free double pass, and is giving it away to one lucky reader.
