Barbeque tips

Summer is finally here, bringing with it perfect BBQ weather.
All our burgers are hand-made and our shops have come up with their own individual recipes, the following burgers can be found at the following shops.

Marylebone - Beef, marrow & parsley
Borough Market - Beef, marrow, lamb kosea
Hackney - Beef, salt, pepper, garlic & worcester sauce
Waterloo - Beef, bacon, brown sauce, spring onion, parsley & chives

The majority of our sausages will cook perfectly on a BBQ, feel free to ask your butcher when purchasing, they will be more than happy to advise. A couple we would recommend you try are our Hawksmoor Sausage, which is a pork, beef and lamb sausage and our limited edition Beef, Chilli sausage which we have just made especially for BBQ's.

Rump steak is perfect for BBQ's, however other steaks will cook fine.

Don't forget to marinade your meat, rump steak or ribs marinated in the following are delicious:

4 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
100ml Soy sauce
8cm ginger peeled and diced
1 -2 red chillies chopped
Freshly groud black pepper

Blackface Hogget

This week our shops have the last of the North Country Blackface lambs which have been grazing on the moor for a year. These will have fantastic herby flavour and are ideal for slow cook or Middle Eastern recipes.

The Ginger Pigs answer to Stargazy Pie

We were asked to make a medieval looking pie. Les the baker came up with a fantastic recipe using a hot water crust pastry filled with coarsely chopped pork with a pigs trotter staring from the top of the pastry. As the pie cooks the rich jelly oozes straight into the soft pork. These are not the smallest pies but great for a family picnic or buffet table. We can make these to order.
