Last week I popped down to the new Salt Meats Cheese pop-up store taking up temporary digs in the Sydney MLC Centre. Accompanied by a host of media personalities, including The Daily Telegraph’s new Sydney Taste Editor, Grant Jones, and NSW food producers’ best advocate, Lyndey Milan, I downed Aperol Spritzes and flirted with handsome young lads wrapping grissini with truffle honey and Serrano Spanish prosciutto sliced on a fancy Berkel meat slicer. While Inner Westies like me are probably already familiar with the Alexandria warehouse’s large range, if you work in the CBD, this small store version offers up a selection of cured meats, flavoured salts, cheeses and freshly made pasta sauces – all perfect for the time-poor! If you decide to support it, the three-month trial might work out into a permanent store. Just sayin’.
