The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - UP CLOSE -

From T-bones to eye fil­let, if it’s a meat-re­lated ques­tion An­thony Puharich can most likely an­swer it. The butcher is the star of new Life­Style FOOD se­ries Ask The Butcher and sup­plies meat to some of the coun­try’s best restau­rants. The former mer­chant banker took time out to tell TV Guide about his favourite things. EN­TER­TAIN­MENT Movie: The Usual Sus­pects. Book: The Google Story: In­side The Hottest Busi­ness, Me­dia, And Tech­nol­ogy Success Of Our Time by David A. Vise. TV show: River Cot­tage. Hugh Fearn­ley-Whit­tingstall’s book The River Cot­tage Meat Book con­tin­ues to be my go-to book for in­for­ma­tion on all things meat. Band or singer: My playlists run the gamut from Cat Stevens to Guns N’ Roses to Justin Tim­ber­lake. My all time fa­vorite band would be Led Zep­pelin. Al­bum: Led Zep­pelin Re­mas­ters. Karaoke song: I have been known to bust out a bit of Elvis Pres­ley. Gad­get: My Bang & Olufsen Be­olit

12 por­ta­ble wire­less mu­sic sys­tem. LIFE­STYLE Hol­i­day spot: My wife and I both love Krabi in Thai­land. We have been there three times over the years to cel­e­brate mean­ing­ful mile­stones. We stay at a beau­ti­ful re­sort called Rayavadee (pic­tured), the only re­sort on the fa­mous Phra Nang beach. Thing to do on the week­end: I really love bring­ing home a sen­sa­tional cut of meat, like a dry- aged An­gus T-bone, and fir­ing up my char­coal BBQ in the back­yard. Place to go to re­lax: For an early morn­ing or late af­ter­noon swim at the beach. Hobby: Car rac­ing. Sport to fol­low or play: I love soc­cer. I am a passionate FC Barcelona sup­porter. Din­ner con­ver­sa­tion topics: Ho­tels, restau­rants and hol­i­days. HOME Room in your house: My ‘‘man cave’’. It houses all the things that I have col­lected over the years from rac­ing parts of Fer­rari F1 cars to Guns N’ Roses signed mem­o­ra­bilia and a very rare signed Michael Jor­dan Chicago Bulls sin­glet. Place to hide from ev­ery­one: My bed­room. Art piece: My wife and I trav­elled to Bei­jing six years ago and vis­ited the FOOD Meal of all time: Mo­mo­fuku Ko in New York in 2010, which was a fun, ca­sual ex­pe­ri­ence high­lighted by eat­ing some of the most in­ter­est­ing and in­no­va­tive food I have ever tried. Dish to cook: Fresh pasta with sherry braised ox­tail. In­gre­di­ent: Beef, but Echire salted but­ter comes a close sec­ond. Guilty plea­sure: Mag­num Ego. Bar: 121BC, Syd­ney. Restau­rant: I bet­ter not an­swer this ques­tion or there might be a re­volt. But any­body I sup­ply meat to is a good start! Cafe: Kitchen by Mike. Mike McEn­ear­ney is a dear friend and a freak­ishly good cook. STYLE Style icon: David Beck­ham. Fash­ion de­signer: Tom Ford. Piece of cloth­ing: My leather Bally Trainspot­ting jacket. Shop: Peck in Mi­lan. The best food store in the world by far.

For­bid­den City where we bought a match­ing pair of Jade dragons which date back to the Qing dy­nasty.
