We hae meat

September 03rd, 2020

In 1986, the iconic James Inglis Reid Ltd. store of traditional Scottish food with its motto, “We hae meat that ye can eat,” closed to make way for the Pacific Centre development. It had been a fixture on downtown Granville Street for almost eighty years, known for its smoked hams and bacons, sausages and haggis, and freshly-baked meat pies and scones – almost all made on the premises. Now M. Anne Wyness, the founder’s granddaughter has written a company history, The Larder of the Wise: The History of Vancouver’s James Inglis Reid Ltd. (Figure 1 $32.99) that honours the store and its artisanal techniques. 978-1-77327-118-7
