Our new book, Broadsheet Melbourne Food, is out now. To celebrate its release, we’re giving away a prize a day for 12 days. Each prize includes a copy of the book and a goods from one of Melbourne’s best producers or suppliers, selected from the book. Enter now for your chance to win.

Here’s some good news: if you missed out on our day six prize from Meatsmith Fitzroy, here’s another chance to win it, thanks to Meatsmith in St Kilda.

Like its older counterpart, St Kilda only works with the country’s best farmers, such as O’Connor Beef in Gippsland; Bannockburn Chicken near Geelong; and for pigs, Glen Eyrie Rare Breeds Farm in northern Victoria.

Acclaimed restaurateur Andrew McConnell has a share in the business, but the man with the knowledge is Troy Wheeler, who’s been a butcher for two decades. He ages beef in-house and turns many other kinds of meat into excellent smallgoods that will instantly lift any Christmas charcuterie board.

As you’d expect from a McConnell business, there’s plenty to complement the meat, including pickles and condiments from The Builders Arms; a range of knives; bread by Baker Bleu; and a focused selection of wine, beer and spirits.

Win this second Meatsmith tray and you can host the ultimate Christmas barbeque. It contains the following:
