Now over ten years old, Meatopia continues to pledge the values instilled by our esteemed founder, Josh Ozersky, and to deliver his messages of quality, sustainability and taste to the people.
We pledge to ...
We pride ourselves on using meat from animals (land, air & sea) that are raised naturally and have lived good, cruelty-free lives. In the hands of our truly great chefs, Meatopia is a fitting finale, paying them the utmost respect.
Meatopia is the only food festival that curates the entire menu. First, hand selecting our wish list of chefs, and then by visiting them and tasting the dishes in advance. We insist on ethically produced and sustainable ingredients. Only by doing this can we deliver the broad palate of taste and style for which we are known.
Amongst the headline acts, you’ll discover the new leaders of the culinary world from all corners of the globe, practicing new techniques – the heroes of tomorrow. The one thing they all have in common: they’re here to conjure magic from the flames.
Meatopia is not about gluttony. The Cutting Room is the hallowed place of intellect and learning, imparting knowledge in cutting, cooking, burning, brewing and distilling, from the leading lights in our movement, in an inclusive, engaging and thoroughly edible manner.
Open your eyes, your mind, and your mouth, and you’ll receive the real Meatopia experience. Immerse yourself in the spirit of “nose-to-tail” eating, embrace new tastes and textures, and celebrate the whole animal, not just the prime cuts.
The real hero of Meatopia is the fire, the essential ingredient that comes alive and makes the whole thing possible. You won’t find gas, sous vide, or, God forbid, a microwave. Just sustainable wood, charcoal, peat or moss and the bark to ignite your bite.
Our ultimate promise – to stay committed to creating new and exciting experiences with the best chefs around. Meatopia will always evolve with the times – this is not about fashions or trends but a thoughtful showcase of innovation and progression.
