  • Raising The Burger To Gourmet Heights

    Think burgers are cheap food? Think again !

    A comedian recently proclaimed on the television that you don’t find young American couples ‘going for an English’, to which someone retorted, ‘...yes, but all you eat are burgers’.

    True enough, well not actually that true really, but if your idea of a burger is that shaken out of a frozen cardboard box, or prized apart from a tower of iced up perfect circles of what could be meat but more rather looks like frozen compost, you really ought to think again about burgers.

    The thing about burgers is they are a depository for so many different flavours, and with care you can create some seriously gourmet food. The reason why we so often like to fast food restaurant burgers is hardly for the meat portion itself, but the pickles, sauces and condiments added to them, and the additions are important, we want to expand your horizons to create something amazing with meat.

  • 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.
