[6 August/ Stuff]

Euro, Jervois Steak House and The Crab Shack are among 10 Nourish Group restaurants that have committed to preventing climate change with a sustainable beef supplier, Grandad’s Beef farm. Grandad’s Beef farm in the Waikato only kills one of their 200 cows if all 14 of its edible parts are ordered Nourish Group’s Executive Chef Gareth Stewart said Grandad’s Beef was more expensive than traditionally farmed meat but is less costly to the environment and tastier. Mr Steward expects the cost of Grandad’s Beef meat to decrease as more restaurants use it. Mr Steward said the increasing trend of conscious diners was a good reason for New Zealand restaurants to be more environmentally friendly. Ordering an entire cow instead of specific cuts caused Chefs to be more inventive.
