Its close to Christmas and I was still looking for another Christmas present for @WineGuyTO when I stumbled across the Carnivore Club. Perfect! He loves meat and it would be a gift that he would not be expecting.
So what is this club? A subscription based curated charcuterie box from around the world, each month being a different theme. The Club has been around for about a year and is Canadian based, which I liked because there was no exchange rates or customs issues to go through. Subscriptions are on a month-by-month basis or full year (the latter would be approximately $600). Each box contains 4-6 items of meat and a fold-out that includes explanations of the products, a bio of the producer and a VQA recommendation.
The day our box arrived was the same day the Club appeared on CBC’s Dragon’s Den. Don’t worry, I won’t spoil the result! This month the theme was Spanish and we received two sausages and two hams.
Overall we are very pleased with our first box and are looking forward to our second.
