Carnivore Club

New meat of the month club launches in Toronto

Meat fanatics have a new way to placate their desire for top notch charcuterie in Toronto and beyond. Launched on Indiegogo on September 22nd, the locally based Carnivore Club is a monthly meat delivery that features cured meats, terrines, and other products that aren't readily found at the grocery store. The company is looking for $10,000 in donations to cover costs associated with stocking their first run of of inventory and with the establishment of what they call a marketplace — a database of artisanal producers designed to showcase farms that probably get less attention than they deserve.

The club portion of the concept costs $50, for which subscribers will receive one box of speciality meats each month. The first box comes with Iberico chorizo, Culatello, Bresaola, Pate de Champagne, Pata Negra, and Tuscan sausage. It's all top notch, but the Bresaola and the Pata Negra are the standouts for me and don't make it more than 24 hours in my fridge. Thankfully, as cured meats, you don't have to worry as much about your products spoiling if you consume the contents of your box more slowly.

So it's a good concept that and the quality is there. $50 ain't cheap, but it's a hell of a lot less expensive than buying charcuterie at a restaurant on multiple occasions. One critical point worthy of note, however: the affiliated promotional materials for the Carnivore Club are so hopelessly anachronistic and cliche — "man was made to eat meat" — that they put a damper on what is otherwise a good product. Let's tone that back, guys. It's all a bit forced and tired to me.
