From now 'til we publish the 2012 edition of Best of Phoenix, New Times and Chow Bella present 100 Tastemakers -- Valley residents who make the cut in our culinary scene. Some you'll know; for others, it'll be a first introduction (but likely not the last). While you're here, check out our 100 Creatives on Jackalope Ranch.

Today: A man who makes the cut.

Tastemaker 31: Tim Wilson

The Meat Shop owner Tim Wilson was born in Canada in 1965 and raised in Iowa, where he raised pigs. In 1986 he met his wife, Beth, married and settled down in the Arizona desert; they now have two children. He began farming in 2003 after 20 years of owning a construction business. He currently owns a pig farm, slaughterhouse and The Meat Shop where he sells local all-natural pork, grass-fed beef, free-range chicken, and pasture-raised lamb.

I arrived in Phoenix with... nothing much, only what I could fit in my car

If I was sitting down to dinner for six, my five dream dining companions would be... my wife, son, daughter, son in law, mother and step dad.

One place everyone who comes to Phoenix must eat is... Different Pointe of View.

One menu item this city could do without is... tostadas.

My last meal in Phoenix would be... pig roast.
