Old School Butcher Charts

Can anyone point me in the direction of where to purchase old school butcher charts in Toronto? Even current ones would be helpful. Thanks!

  1. Here is an online source
    $U.S.28 plus shipping for beef and pork laminates, or $45 with old time black and white charts included.

    1. I'm not sure if they still have them, but The Monkey's Paw used to have quite a collection of old meat map pamphlets - if I remember correctly, the owner has a particular soft spot for them.

        Meat map? Oh that's funny. That's very, very funny. Well, here's your problem, you turned left at the flank when you should have gone right on straight to the rump.

        I would try eBay also, and failing that, ask at some of the old-school butchers, they've got to get them from someone...

          If you enjoy that, you should've seen the guy give an in-depth analysis of the evolution of meat maps over the decades. Completely deadpan, and hysterical. :)

      2. You could contact the Beef Council of Ontario (i know there is such an entity, not sure of it's exact name) and similarly the Pork, Lamb and Game Council's. I know I got them for free from them when i was a chef apprentice.
