How To... Cut Chicken Strips for a Stir-Fry

Saturday afternoon, and the queue at Garrett’s Butchers on the Racecourse Road in Limerick, is out the door.
It’s one of those nice queues, however. It’s a queue where no one actually minds the fact that they are in a queue. No one is impatient. Everyone is polite. The staff are working like crazy to get us all sorted as we try to make up our minds about what we are going to cook for Saturday dinner, and Sunday lunch, and Monday leftovers, and Tuesday’s kid’s birthday party.
Garrett Lander’s shops demonstrate that the craft that defines Limerick’s culinary identity is the craft of the craft butcher.
Here is a city where, if you are a player in the craft butcher business, you have to stay at the head of the field. You have to be good at everything: sourcing; serving; creating; innovating; satisfying. Mr Landers and his team are good at all these things. The service levels in the shops are stratospheric, and the stream of innovative new products that Mr Landers spins out every year is simply amazing. And, at the root of it all, is the fact that his meat is sourced from his own farm gate, straight to your plate.
That’s why the queue in Garrett’s is out the door. And that’s why it’s such a happy queue of happy, hungry people. We all know we are getting the good thing.
