  • Crispy Scotch Eggs

    Whenever we describe a scotch egg to our family and friends around the world, they look at back at us with their tongue out, drooling with sliver down one side of their mouth. Not too dissimilar to a dog with a bone. They ask "Why have I never had one of these?" And it's a pretty good question because they are so delicious when served right.

    Scotch eggs are British delicacy that has lived on and thrived with many of these little balls of goodness been sold in butchers shops, farm shops and even supermarkets throughout the UK.

    However, when you go to buy these scotch eggs, it seems to be a bit of lottery whether or not you get that yolky centre that can simply make or break a scotch egg! So making your own from scratch makes perfect sense.

  • Chistorra

    Through popular demand for this tapas recipe, our Spanish friend Miguel who lives in Spain has kindly handed over this legendary recipe that his mother used.

    Chistorra is from Spain's Basque region. A fresh type of fast-cure sausage from Aragon and Navarre, Spain. Seasoned with smoked paprika De la Vera and fresh garlic, this super thin chorizo has a juicy, meaty flavor and a crisp bite. It can be considered a special type of chorizo. Made of minced pork, or a mixture of minced pork and beef, this meaty chorizo is encased in thin lamb casings.

    The ingredients are the same as those of the chorizo although its fat content is much higher. Chistorra differs from chorizo in addition to its reduced size (thin lamb casings are used to make it). Further, the chistorra is a product that should be consumed fresh and the time of maceration and curing does not usually exceed 5 days. Then it is kept cold and consumed as soon as possible.

  • Haggis Recipe

    What used to be seen as food for the peasants is now seen as a Scottish delicacy and now one of the world’s most infamously bizarre foods thanks to the celebration of Burns Night. It is traditionally served at Burn’s Night Suppers on January 25th because Robert Burns, the bard of Scotland and a fan of the dish, wrote the poem ‘Address to a Haggis‘ calling it ‘great chieftan o’ the pudding-race!

    This should not however just be a one-off delicacy you eat once a year, it can be a great replacement for a Sunday dinner and why not when it tastes so good!

    To source pluck, just ask your local quality butcher who will be able to get hold of the lungs, heart and liver for you.
