Armand Ferrante, a Whole Foods Market butcher from Middletown, N.J., won the company’s 2012 national Best Butcher competition finale held at Meatopia on Saturday in New York City.
Through months of nationwide competitions with more than 300 professional Whole Foods Market meat cutters, Ferrante cut and carved his way to the Best Butcher national championship, where he went head-to-head with two other finalists.
The title match included a trio of knife-wielding tasks including:
Making a Turducken by deboning a turkey and chicken and adding duck breast,
Merchandising a whole lamb, and
Creating a new-to-the-meat-case “cut” from a beef forequarter.
The Jersey Boneless Short Rib, the new “cut” Ferrante created for the contest, will be featured in all Whole Foods Market stores starting Sept. 15, for $8.99 per pound.
