Who is the Butcher?
The master butcher behind Ask the Butcher is Anthony Puharich, owner of Vic’s Premium Quality Meat, which has been supplying quality meat to Australia’s finest restaurants for over 15 years, and serving up specialty meat at the prestigious Victor Churchill butchery, the “Bulgari of butcheries”.
Anthony shares his in-depth knowledge and expert advice, so you too can bring out the very best that meat can offer.
Anthony is also staring in a new TV show, Ask the Butcher, airing from 26th March 2013 on Australia’s LifeStyle FOOD channel.
NB: This is a NEW app from Ask the Butcher, offering new functionality such as 'Suggest a cut', 'At the butchers' and 'Prepare it perfectly'. The new timer prompts you to turn your meat and most importantly advises on how long to rest your meat.
What's New in Version 2.1
App rewritten and relaunched to coincide with Ask the Butcher, airing from 26th March on Australia’s LifestyleFOOD channel.
I love this App. All the info on meat is easy to understand and informative. The charts and cut lists are very helpful and the cooking timer is awesome. I nailed a perfect roast last night simply by following all the prompts. Turns a novice into a meat cooking expert in no time! Highly recommend this App.
Could do better
Needs to incorporate low and slow methods, how to ask for cuts of meat we see on British and American cooking shows etc.
The "ask the butcher" function also doesn't work.
No updates to the app for years - long overdue. This could be such a good app with some attention to detail.
I've giving it 5
Options of metric or imperial, useful clear worded. Diagrams to show location of cuts. A very neat, well made up for anyone wanting to know more or try something new with proteins in the kitchen. Excellent.
