For 16 years Feather and Bone have been the butchery of choice for chefs around Australia. Now you can get a taste of it at the all-new Waverley location.
If Sydney restaurants have taught us anything, it’s that an impressive plate of food starts at the produce. Fred’s, Firedoor, 10 William St, The Centennial and Lankan Filling Station are testament to this, and it’s no surprise when they have Feather and Bone on call as the butcher of choice. Luckily for us, their second store has landed on Bronte Road bringing an ethical butchery to the foodies of Waverley, as well as takeaway goodies and ready-made meals so you can ‘Put Your Feet Up’ (as the menu is called) at home.
Feather and Bone have a lofty reputation in the industry for being sustainable. The team specialises in whole animal butchery and unusual cuts of meat come with a side of advice on how to cook. From paddock to plate, both the animal and farmer are respected. Regular visits to producers including Grassland Poultry, Moorlands Lamb, Near River Pork, Burraduc Buffalo Dairy and Malfoys Gold Wild Honey ensure the team understands the farmers and how best to hero the produce.
Furthering their sustainable practices, in-house chef Hamish Pollitt prepares delicious meals to take home with ingredients that may have otherwise gone to waste. While one week you might see lamb shank ragu and Lankan Goan curry, the next you may have chicken soup and pork ramen. You can also snatch up ready-to-eat takeaway food while you stock up your fridge. There will be one meat and one vegetarian sandwich available each day, garnished broths like organic chicken booster broth with turmeric and sausage rolls. We are quickly realising this isn’t your traditional butchery…
For those wanting to learn about the benefits of regenerative agriculture and how to be more sustainable in consumption, Feather and Bone will host regular tastings and group discussions with suppliers. This allows us to talk directly with the farmers and grasp a better connection to the food we eat.
The interiors keep with the sustainable theme by utilising recycled materials. Tables will feature cross-sections of shin bones taken from whole animals and lamps made from vellum (kangaroo skin).
Feather and Bone Waverley is open Tuesday to Friday from 9am – 6pm, Saturday from 10am – 5pm and Sunday from 10am – 2pm. Find out more here.
