All through December, SFoodie is bringing you local gift ideas for the food obsessives in your life.
Friends, around the holidays, we understand the need to get cozy and ring in the celebrations with certain holiday fare. You will attempt to get snuggly with hot chocolate, mulled cider, and hot toddies. You will indulge in the integral tin of sweet and savory popcorn in the break room, paper plate of holiday cookies at the office, or your co-worker's sad attempt at homemade fudge (No, it's not supposed to be gritty like that). If you are really desperate, you might even drink eggnog. Oh the horror! This winter, we urge you to resist the usual holiday temptations and instead consider warming your festive soul with a gistening, juicy slab of grass-fed beef from 4505 Meats.
Get comfy with a grilled New York Strip or hunker down with a redundantly tender tenderloin. Better yet, give the gift of said juicy meat slab accompanied by the 4505 Meats cookbook, Whole Beast Butchery, to your most meat-lovingest friend. For around $60, you can give the gift of meat, meat smarts, and keep a loved one warm all winter long!
Visit 4505 Meats at the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Markets on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays or at the Mission Community Market on Thursdays. Order the cookbook through their website and receive a personalized copy signed by owner, author, chef, and butcher Ryan Farr.
