The mission of The Butcher & Larder is to be Chicago’s first sustainable, all whole animal butcher shop. We custom cut meat from animals that are responsibly raised on small, Midwestern family farms. In addition, we make a variety of sausages, patés and prepared deli items such as ham, bacon and corned beef for retail sale. We offer butchering and charcuterie classes (sausage making, etc.) at the shop, and plan to periodically hold small, casual family-style dinners.
Craftsman and Wolves is a contemporary pâtisserie in the mission district of San Francisco. The name is a nod to The craftsman and the numerous challenges that one faces when pursuing their craft. For William Werner, Chef of CAW, the shop is the pursuit of twelve years' experience in restaurants and hotels during which he has refined techniques for pastry and chocolate work, homes in on his presentation style, and expanded his palette of flavors.
Shot in a couple of hours on 2 separate afternoons, this is Leo who lives in a yurt with his partner and a variety of animals on the edge of Exmoor in the UK.
He is a craftsman of many talents, and this film shows him turning a piece of wood into a beautiful bowl using a traditional foot powered lathe (which he also built himself).
We started shooting on the first afternoon, but one of his sheep escaped, so we had to shoot the rest the following afternoon. Unfortunately, the weather was far from perfect and was actually raining lightly.
It doesn't take him long to turn one of these bowls, and watching him work was a real pleasure.
