ANDREW – THE KING OF SMALLGOODS
It all started in 1982 when a young boy by the name of Andrew Vourvahakis used to stand on an upturned milk crate at the back of a Yarraville butcher shop cleaning trays. At 15 that young boy started his apprenticeship to become a butcher and smallgoods maker, who today, is still as passionate as when he established Andrew’s Choice in 1989.
Since then Andrew has been nurturing the age old art of Charcuterie; Smoking, salting and curing to produce some of Australia’s most awarded smallgoods. Drawing from his Greek roots, Andrew has infused “Meraki” into every aspect of his work. As the word implies, Andrew brings his extensive knowledge and experience, together with his creativity, love and passion to produce Australia’s best range of artisan smallgoods made with ‘Meraki.’.
