Manhattan Meat Market LIVE | Chef Alli's Farm Fresh Kitchen
“We love eating meat!” says co-owner and manager of Manhattan Meat Market, Jake. When I visited with him in December of 2017 I found a great business that tells the story of the Kansas Farmer and Rancher through an incredible selection of meats and American-made products! In this episode with Kansas Living we help you ease the Meat Case Malign, build a gorgeous charcuterie board, and grab some great gifts for any occasion. 

Approaching the Meat Case

Manhattan Meat Market LIVE | Chef Alli's Farm Fresh KitchenSometimes we’re apprehensive when approaching the meat case. Jake gave us some helpful tips for having a successful shopping trip at your local meat case!

  • It’s okay to NOT know what you want. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. A good butcher wants to help you have a good experience both buying and eating!
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want! Tell them what you want to do so they can point you in the right direction.
  • Think about what you want: How many people are you feeding? Is it a special occasion? Are kids involved? How old are they?
  • Nowadays, consumers have a lot of questions about how meat is raised and produced. Be willing to have open conversations about food!
  • You can learn more by watching our interview. It was informative!

How to Put a Charcuterie Together

Manhattan Meat Market LIVE | Chef Alli's Farm Fresh KitchenChef Eli gave us some fabulous information for creating a beautiful and delicious Charcuterie board for your guests.

  • Charcuterie is an Italian word for “cold, cooked meats” and describes a platter of flavorful, cured, thinly sliced meats.
  • These Italian meats are often served with cheese, dried fruits, spreads, nuts, pickled vegetables, or crackers, depending on the season.
