After patrons began clamouring with increasing frequency for Esquire to start selling its popular wild buffalo jerky, executive chef Ryan Squires finally decided to give the people what they want, and then some. After a bit of tinkering in the kitchen with second-in-command Brenden Gradidge, the duo has delivered esq. shop to the world – a range of produce-based, small-batch goods made in esquire’s kitchens, packaged on site and sold to anyone that has been dying to get their hands on the venue’s gourmet small goods. The recipes and the flavours are the same, giving patrons the chance to enjoy the esquire experience in their own home.
All products at esq. shop are preservative and additive free, meaning that they are intended to be used quickly instead of being left on the shelf for extended periods of time. The range includes gourmet bacon, kimchi, passata, ketchup, burger pickles, fermented chilli sauce, pickled ginger and, of course, the wild buffalo jerky. The kitchen will be looking to add new products over the coming months, experimenting with products such as pickled onions, meat-free Bolognese sauce, satay sauce and more. Get your hands on esq. shop goods at esquire itself, or at spots such as New Farm Deli, Sourced Grocer and Fruity Capers & Deli in Toowong.
