Sebastian & Co Fine Organic Meats

Sebastian & Co Fine Organic Meats

Please describe the product or service your business offers.

Sebastian & Co Fine Meats is boutique butcher shop tucked away in Dundarave, West Vancouver. We opened our doors in 2007 to a few local customers who stumbled across us. Business was slow to start, and we were nervous! Slowly but surely, word started to spread about our unique, old-fashioned approach to butchery, and after a few food writers took interest, our little local business started to draw customers from all over the Lower Mainland. Today, we have regulars who honor us with fighting hours of traffic or long ferry rides to stock up on organic and naturally raised local meat. In fact, we have customers from as far away as Singapore and Geneva who always make a point of coming in for their t-bone fix whenever they are in town. In the tradition of the old-fashioned butcher shop, owner Sebastian works with local farmers and makes almost everything in the shop from scratch. Taking great pains to ensure the meat is tender and flavorful, our steaks are dry-aged for 40 days. We make all our artisanal sausages from scratch, with freshly chopped herbs and no nitrates, preservatives or meat binders added. Sebastian smokes his own bacon, ham and other deli items, which are made from the meat he buys from farmers in BC and Alberta. As a trained professional chef, Sebastian whips up delicious and unusual house-made marinades to compliment, but not overshadow, the natural flavours of his meat.

Tell us why your business should win the "We Heart Local BC Food & Drink" contest.

We think Sebastian & Co should win the "We Heart Local BC Food & Drink" contest because we love being part of the local community. We support local farmers by showcasing the fruits of their labors, and take every opportunity to bring their story to customers all over the Lower Mainland. In addition to being spokespeople for our farmers, we have also brought back the time-honored tradition of the local butcher. Children come into the shop with special drawings for Sebastian and the staff, we join our customers at their family dinner table and they at ours, and people bring their out-of-town relatives to the shop to 'meet their butcher'. Ours is a very special kind of local - a local of times gone by, when people really got to know and trust their butcher ... and that's why we think we should win the "We Heart Local BC Food & Drink" contest - because we love local, and local loves us.

    Some of us are too busy to comment Lorie. However, in light of the fact there really is no butcher that even comes close to Sebastian, the man truly is an artist with meat and fowl and the many other pleasures he creates to enhance his meat and fowl. I hereby proclaim Sebastian and Co to be the number one choice in all of Canada.
