‘Turkey To Go’ packages from gourmet butcher shop available for pickup October 12 and 13

The culinary team at Two Rivers Specialty Meats  is making holiday hosting easy this year with the launch of their brand new Thanksgiving Dinner package. The gourmet butcher shop has collaborated with friends and fellow North Shore community businesses Lift Bakery and Temper Chocolates to put together a gourmet ‘Turkey To Go’ ready-made dinner with all the fixings, available for pick-up over the holiday weekend this October.

Designed to feed groups of eight, Two Rivers’ signature Thanksgiving feast features an organic, hormone-free roasted turkey breast – sourced from family-owned Rossdown Farms in Abbotsford – stuffed with apple pork sausage, porcini mushrooms, sage pesto and artichoke hearts. The full-size family meal also includes a plethora of gourmet side dishes perfect for the fall season, including mashed potatoes, maple-glazed rainbow carrots, cranberry chestnut stuffing and sage-infused turkey gravy. Thanksgiving classics will be accompanied by fresh-baked dinner rolls from Lift Bakery and a decadent pumpkin cheesecake from European patisserie Temper.

Two Rivers’ Thanksgiving dinner packages are $300, plus tax, and will be available for pick-up at the North Vancouver butcher shop and eatery on Saturday, October 12 from 2 to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, October 13 from 1 to 3 p.m. For those looking for even more added convenience on the big day, a limited number of hot, ready-to-eat packages will be available for pick up on Sunday, October 13 for an additional $50 charge.

Founded in 2007 by Jason Pleym and Margot Millerd-Pleym, Two Rivers Specialty Meats became the region’s premiere supplier to top chefs in B.C. A favourite with Western Canada’s top chefs, Two Rivers Specialty Meats’ commercial expansion, Two Rivers Meats – The Shop,will connect local farmers with everyday meat lovers as well as home cooks by supplying consumers with an ethical and sustainable product of unsurpassed quality and flavour. Since opening “The Shop” in October 2017, customers across Vancouver can source their meat like the pros: purchasing house-made sausages, dry-aged beef and hand-tooled cuts by Pasqual Stufano and his team, who employ time-honoured and traditional seam-butchery techniques for more authentic and flavourful results. The adjacent take-out deli counter also stocks artisanal salumi and charcuterie. Under the same roof, the family-style eatery works in tandem with the butcher shop to highlight the best preparations for a multitude of products. Menu items such as the 60-Day Dry-Aged Burger and Rotisserie Chicken are available as well as Charcuterie Boards, Butcher Features and, of course, hand-cut French fries cooked in beef tallow. In keeping with our local focus, a rotating selection of local B.C. beer & wine are available on tap. Adjacent to the North Vancouver headquarters, Two Rivers Meats – The Shop boasts a traditional working butchery, complete with a glass-walled dry-age room; a European-style deli and take-away counter; and a 32-seat, eat-in restaurant – all laid-out on a terrazzo-floored, 2,500 square-foot industrial space with an additional 18-seat patio.
