Environmental Portraits – The Urbana Butcher

 

Environmental Portait -chef/butcher

Meet Josh of the Urbana Butcher Shop on Main Street in Downtown Urbana. Josh knows good meat: Organic, free range and/or grass-fed as opposed to caged, antibiotic and hormone filled.  As a trained Chef, he creates interesting and unusual offerings such as house-made Saucisson Sec, Pancetta, Chorizo, Lardo and Headcheese. His training also extends to the details, crown roasts are frenched, loins are rolled and tied and everything is wrapped in the traditional white butchers paper and tied with twine.  I was fortunate to photograph the environmental portraits on a day they were cutting up a hog. Watching the process is a complete learning experience and Josh was great about explaining it to me as I was snapping away. If you are serious about food in the Champaign-Urbana Area, the Urbana Butcher Shop is a must go place!
