Jim Crowley is at the cutting edge of charcuterie. His skills, his sourcing and his experience mean that Crowleys is always up there in the competition to be the best craft butcher in Ireland. And it also means that Mr Crowley is always bringing home prizes from the charcuterie competitions for wildly imaginative creations such as chorizo and goat’s cheese stuffed East Ferry Farm chicken breast. The competitions are pivotal because they show just who in the butchery fraternity is at their creative peak, who is envisaging and re-imagining how different cuts of meat can be prepared and presented for their customers. But it’s not just the cuts of meat that bring Mr Crowley’s customers back time after time, because the shop also offers especially fine cooked dishes – beautiful quiches; excellent meatloaf; cracking roast potatoes; spicy noodle bowls. Crowleys is always right up to speed with how people want to eat, and the shop provides a vital service for everyone lucky enough to find themselves stepping through the doors.
