  • Game Roulade Min. 550g

    Our Game Roulade feeds 3 to 4 guests and is a perfect way to introduce game at the dinner table for the first time. We have layered pheasant and wild duck fillets with orange & thyme stuffing, rolled in locally smoked bacon. With no bones or waste, the roulade is great roasted in the oven and eaten either hot or cold. As a starter its hard to beat cold, finely sliced with some relish and garnish. The dark meat from the wild duck and the light meat from the pheasant make a lovely contrast on the plate. Carries cooking instructions with the packaging. Learn More

  • Mangalitza Dry Cured Gammon - Approx. 1kg TWO GOLD STAR WINNER 2018 GREAT TASTE AWARDS

    Using a traditional dry cure, we have taken the fabulously marbled Mangalitza Pork legs and created one of the best gammons that we have ever tasted! The meat is a dark ruby red and retains a lot of its succulence due to the amazing intra-muscular marbling, and of course the fat covering is absolutely delicious. Place your joint in a large plan of water and bring to the boil, discarding the water and refreshing the pan after that. We would recommend boiling the gammon for approximately 30 minutes / lb (or 1hr/kg) and then cool the joint for about 15 minutes. You can then score the fat into diamond shapes and it does look very attractive to stud with cloves in the centre of each square or diamond. A particularly tasty glaze can be made by simply combining a whole grain mustard and honey or maple syrup, spread over the ham and place it in a foil lined baking tin. It will usually take about twenty five minutes at 200C for the glaze to turn a beautiful golden brown and to fill the kitchen with the glorious aroma of baked ham! Learn More

  • Mangalitza Pork Burgers - Min. 170g

    A very natural step for us along the research and development path was to look at producing a delicious burger from this amazing pork - and by George have we had success! It's very hard to compare the Mangalitza with anything else, as the attributes of this pork are just so amazing - the depth of flavour, the wonderful "umami" that we all know about but can't pinpoint terribly easily .... make this an exceptionally juicy, tasty burger, the like of which you will not find on the high street!

  • Oven Ready Grouse Min. 300g

    Traditionally commencing on the 12th August in Scotland, England and Wales, the Grouse shooting season continues until 10th December. The grouse is our favourite small game bird and ideal for one portion serving. The meat is heavily perfumed with the heathers that these lovely little birds live and thrive on.

    Sadly, this year there has not really been a "Glorious 12th" as it is often called. The raging summer heat has been responsible for the killing-off of the main food source of young grouse, a small grub, and of course the terrible fires on the Moors have destroyed habitats. However, some shoots have still been able to function where they have had more rain, and in those instances they have been shooting the last year's growth of birds, rather than the usual "young" grouse. We have been pleased with the quality of birds so far although we are not sure how long we will be able to source them this year. Learn More
