Tale Tuesday: Joe's Tale

Growing up the youngest of six didn't mean slim pickings for Joe Lazzara. In northern Indiana, Joe's family ran a Sicilian fruit and vegetable market that gave Joe a healthy appetite for good food and hard work. His dad lead by example and lived the family motto: give your personal attention, follow up, and have a sense of urgency.

Advice like that (and a good meal) took Joe far and wide as a successful salesman on the road for work. He sought out the best meals and then tracked down the cooks who put that great food on his plate. When he came home to Indiana, he'd learned that all those fancy chefs were hungry for the same products he'd grown up seeing in his grandparents' market: fresh, local, all-natural foods.

So those are the same qualities that Joe stocks in his own butcher shop and fish market in Carmel, Indiana. And they're the same attributes that make Smoking Goose goods fill Joe's shelves. Look for our Garlic Sausage, Andouille, Lardo and more at Joe's, and stop by on Saturday, March 31st, 1-3pm when Josh will be hosting a complimentary tasting of Smoking Goose meat treats!
