  • 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

  • Welsh Wagyu Beef Delmonico Steak min. 500g - Dry Aged

    1 Review(s)
    Delmonico Steak does seem to be a popular name for quite a few different cuts, about 9 in total. but we take ours from the rib end of the chuck, leaving the rib in. The original Delmonico was served in New York City in the mid-19th Century, and was accompanied by a potato dish, known as Delmonico's potatoes, prepared by making a mashed potato dish topped with grated cheese and buttered breadcrumbs, then baked until golden brown and served steaming. Sounds wonderful! Learn More

  • Boneless Suckling Pig (Porchetta) Stuffed with Italian Herbs - min. 1kg

    The piggies are boned, rolled and strung and this piece of Porchetta is approximately 1kg. This will serve 4 guests, and due to the way we have prepared them they are very simple to carve and serve. To encourage the crackling, rub the outside of the piggie with oil and sprinkle generously with sea salt. We would recommend having your oven at about 220 degrees C for the first 25 - 30 minutes, so that the crackling gets a good start. An approximate cooking time would be 25 - 30 minutes for each 500g, with a good 25 minutes for resting the meat once it is cooked, which helps it to relax and become easy to carve. Traditional accompaniments for pork such as apple sauce work really well ... and of course some lovely potatoes roasted in our award winning lovely Welsh Wagyu Fat  are a must! Learn More

  • A Victorian Treat - Free Range Geese From Shropshire

    We are delighted to once again to be able to present our beautifully plump Free Range Geese bred by the Brisbourne Family in Nesscliffe, Shropshire, with whom we have worked for many years. The geese are reared free range, grazing fields adjacent to the old A5 which passes through Nesscliffe, they have become quite a local landmark. They graze and roam freely with ad lib supplements of home produced wheat (grown to Farm Assured standards), potatoes and a specially prepared corn ration, without the use of growth promoters and additives.At night the geese are brought indoors, for protection reasons, bedded down daily on fresh straw. Though sheltered at night they are still open to fresh air and natural light. All the geese grow naturally to reach full maturity.Brisbourne Geese are traditionally processed in December for freshness, and the weight range may vary but is always above 5.5kg. Each bird is individually dry plucked and waxed then hung for 7-10 days in a chilled environment to produce a deep and succulent flavour. All birds are dressed and finished by hand.Learn More
