Great news, Orlando!  We're expanding our operation to open a brick-and-mortar shop at the East End Market in Audubon Park! We are bringing you classic sandwiches using our fancy meats with bread from the local bakery and produce from small Florida farms.  Our new shop will also have all our deli cuts, sausages, bacon and other cured meats available by the pound.  Other offerings will be fancy tasting boards featuring items fr...

Hinckley's Fancy Meats started a Black Friday tradition last year.  We were grateful to be in The New York Times Holiday Gift Guide and rather than hem and haw about some drummed up Black Friday special to add more volume to our sales, we decided to give back through charity.  Black Friday can bring about the worst in consumer capitalism.  This year someone, somewhere, will go fisticuffs over a Teddy Ruxpin or Trumpy Bear, or...

Every year it's a struggle to find independently run Florida farms that raise turkeys using sustainable farming methods.  The birds are popular during the holidays, but most of us chefs aren't buying whole turkeys the rest of the year.  Quite often the farms that we regularly buy eggs and chickens from will raise a few turkeys every year and give them to their favorite chef clients.  That's been the case for most of my culinar...

     Making the best bacon possible means finding the best ingredients possible.  When we set out to make Hinckley's Fancy Bacon, we asked ourselves two important questions: 

"Where do we find the best pork possible?"

"What other ingredients can we find locally that will allow it to shine?"

     If being a chef has taught me anything, it is that you are only as good as your ingredients.  So, we wanted the pig...

     We spent some time roaming about the Italy countryside looking for inspiration so we could put a new box at your doorstep.  Italy is most known for its dry cured meats and salumi like prosciutto, pancetta and sopressata.  We spent a lot of time digging into these and we're working through the intricacies of the Florida Dept. of Agriculture code so that we can bring them to you in the near future.  We spent an eq...

We recently took a road trip about 90 minutes north to Hawthorne, FL to visit Tracy Lee Farms.  As a general rule of thumb, we like to pay a visit to our suppliers a couple times every year to learn more about their operation and bring your questions to the farmers.  It's important to know the people who produce your food.  And we want to introduce you to someone doing things the right way.

You can find Tracy Lee's li...

We put a lot of thought into what we should offer for Black Friday.  We thought about a discount.  We thought about free bacon or a t-shirt.  We thought about a "buy this and get that" sort of deal.  We already offer free shipping.  Nothing seemed to really capture the spirit of the season.  So we decided to pass on Black Friday deals and giveaways and focus instead on sending some good energy out into the world.  So here's th...
