Look out Peterborough butchers, there’s a new kid in town.
And he is slicing up some fine, fine looking meats.
Truth be told, George Madill, butcher and owner of Primal Cuts, the new boutique meatery on Lansdowne Street, isn’t new to Peterborough. He’s just been away for awhile. Seven years to be precise.
He’s been honing his craft in Toronto, starring in stints at Cumbrae’s and Olliffe’s — two of the most celebrated meat shops in the City. His time as Head Butcher at Olliffe’s secured him a reputation as one of the best young butchers in town — not bad for a Peterborough kid.
Having gained both success and a name for himself, Madill has returned to his hometown, ready to treat Peterborough to some of the best sourced and immaculately prepared foods in the area.
Judging by the crowd gathered for his invite-only grand opening, Peterborough is more than ready to welcome him back.
