GREAT TASTE AWARD WINNERS !!

These are the products that swept the board this year at the Great Taste Awards and collected an amazing total of SIX Gold Stars between them!!! We are particularly proud of the Mangalitza Dry Cured Gammon which is the result of some very intense developement work from our lovely Rachel - this is what some of the the Judges said about it :"The beautiful fat layer keeps this wonderfully juicy - we could see the moisture running between the muscles as we carved. The aroma is as rich and delicious as the flavour with fat that tastes almost like caramel. The texture is firm but yielding. A lovely bit of pig!"

  • 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 Sirloin Min. 1kg - Dry Aged TWO GOLD STAR WINNER 2018 GREAT TASTE AWARDS

    This is a whole piece of our delicious Welsh Wagyu Beef Sirloin, boneless and ready for either steaking or roasting as a magnificent centrepiece.

Personally we prefer medium-rare but of course this is subjective and good results are possible even if this joint is cooked to well done, purely because of the marbling. Learn More

    The Great Taste Judges had this to say ............ "This is a beautiful looking steak, well marbled and cutting very well. And the taste absolutely lives up to the promise of the look and the smell. It is full flavoured, with an intense rich layered beefiness and excellent texture. We found the outside was beautifully caramelised and the fat was meltingly tender and delicious, with a lingering rich satisfying meaty mouth-feel"

    A delicious flavour indeed, Chimichurri. Blighty describe it as follows:

    "Our Chimichurri blend has subtle notes of garlic and is packed to the rafters with scrumptious herbs. The flavour goes way back to 1783 and has both Spanish and Argentinian influences. To create our British fusion, we air-cure our grass & ale-fed Welsh Wagyu beef to the point of absolute precision. Combined with our house red wine vinegar and spice blend that smacks you in the face, our biltong is then sliced for your pleasure to produce our fantastic melt-in-the-mouth beef delicacy.
