Provenance is a new butcher’s shop in Notting Hill run by a young enthusiasts who gave up desk jobs to train as butchers and charcutiers. Struan Robertson is the founder, a recent alumnus of the School of Artisan Food in Welbeck, Nottinghamshire. The rest of the team – Tom Gibson, Guy Gibson, and Erin Hurst – are all Kiwis, which partly explains the garass-fed wagyu beef burgers from New Zealand that are flying out the doors in barbecue weather. A lot of the meats are value-added, such as marinated whole chickens and lamb kebabs, to offer what Struan calls ‘meal solutions’ for local shoppers (well, he is a former ad man). The meats are all free range, the charcuterie supplied by British makers. Give it a look. Guy Dimond
