Jeff Bovon at J&J Distributors, the best meat and seafood purveyor in L.A., has made your holiday easy this year. He has created a gourmet package from his restaurant-quality meat and sushi-grade seafood to feed up to eight people. For only $275 you get a 5-pound Wagyu boneless rib roast, a 10-pound spiral ham, eight 8-ounce halibut filets, eight organic Frenched Jidori chicken breasts, and eight split marrow bones. That should take care of Christmas Eve, Christmas, and Boxing Day.
There is also a gumbo package available that feeds four to six people, and even includes the roux (the hardest part) and rice, plus King crab legs, peeled jumbo shrimp, Andouille sausage, and chicken thigh meat for $125.
If you would rather choose your own feasts, J&J has a wide assortment of delicacies. All of the steaks are USDA Choice and above. Jeff offers wild fish and all-natural chicken and turkey with no antibiotics. Specialties include foie gras, crab claws, uni, caviar, venison, elk, duck confit, quail, and both black and white truffles. If your tradition includes the Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve, you have a wide selection of seafood to choose from. Go nuts with ingredients like lobster, hamachi, scallops, salmon and albacore.
See the silver lining and take your holiday feast upscale since you don’t have to feed 20 people this year. Jeff is located on Avalon in Gardena for pickup or local delivery. Warehouse hours are 9 am – 1 pm Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know what you need.
