Slaughterhouse chic: these butcher prints are bloody wonderful
These large and detailed diagrams of the different cuts of beef, found at The Cookbook Store, are a wonderful addition to any food lover’s décor and serve as a useful reference guide to aspiring butchers. Created by Smash Rediscoveries, a design gallery in The Junction that specializes in vintage and contemporary design, these 22-by-30-inch posters printed on heavy stock with ragged edges come in three colours (oxblood, black and umber) and cost $35 each.
Five years ago, this might have piqued the interest only of chefs and the Addams Family, but with the snout-to-tail philosophy gaining wide acceptance among diners over the past two years and “industrial” making a comeback among interior designers, don’t be surprised to see this hanging on the wall of a friend’s kitchen or an art student’s dorm.
$35 at the Cookbook Store, 850 Yonge St., 416-920-2665, cook-book.com.
