About the Chateaubriand

Memories are fragile, prone to fade -- it’s a fact of life. But it’s also a fact that memories tend live on and are easier to recall when there is a common thread that is woven through the synaptic fabric, the “gray matter” as it were. With that in mind (pun intended), three Saturdays ago I happened to be sitting on a beach when I set down my book to fish a mineral water from the ice chest when my thoughts strayed to my grandparents. I think about them often but what struck me that day was the vividness of memories and how specific memories stood out – the births, the birthdays, the graduations, the engagement parties, the holidays, the wakes. Then and there it dawned on me, a trued Archimedian “eureka moment” if I ever had one: the common thread through all of these was the incredible, pull-out-all-the-stops dinners that my grandparents prepared for family and friends. The indelible sensory extravaganzas and the interweaving of food, story, ritual, and the odd non-family member that always seemed to make the guest list and into our family photo were burned deep into my cerebral core. A delightful beachy daydream in equal turns both nostalgic and delicious.

The tenderloin comes from the muscle under the spine. This cut’s characteristic tenderness and luxurious flavor come from the muscle’s lack of work.

Sustainably Packaged

We have two important objectives in preparing your order for shipment. First and foremost, that your meat arrives in perfect condition. Second, that the packaging be as environmentally friendly as possible. We seal each steak in its own airtight wrapper and use dry ice to ensure everything stays frozen or near-frozen in transit. The insulating liner is water-soluble and can literally be washed down the drain or composted, and the outer shipping carton is fully recyclable, post-consumer cardboard.
