If you’re just up it might take a second to wrap your brain around this but stick with me.  New research has just been released that suggests people are not fat because they are lazy and don’t move but instead are lazy and don’t move because they are fat!  It took me a while too, […]

James Whelan Butchers: Lamb Kebabs

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013 in Lamb Recipes, Recipes | No Comments »

Ask your butcher to bone the lamb and cut it into decent sized cubes for skewering.  If you are using wooden skewers it is always a good idea to soak them in water before using as this will prevent them burning during cooking.

James Whelan Butchers: Satay Beef

Thursday, September 26th, 2013 in Beef Recipes, Recipes | No Comments »

I love barbecuing and these skewered satays are very popular with children. When barbecuing meat, brush it with oil before placing it on the hotplate, rather than pouring the oil on to the barbecue where it can cause flames and burning. Also soak the wooden skewers in water while the meat is marinating to prevent […]

James Whelan Butchers: Latin America

Friday, March 22nd, 2013 in Good Food | No Comments »

Inspiration for food, how we eat and how we cook is all around us. It is often a simple phrase, something in a newspaper, an innocent observation perhaps that will strike a mental chord and turn into a food thought. Writing also shares that space of infinite inspiration in the world around and about us. […]

James Whelan Butchers: A Food Truck Rodeo

Friday, November 2nd, 2012 in Good Food | No Comments »

“Street Food” is something I’m hearing and reading a lot about and I’m still not sure I fully understand what it is, but it has certainly elevated the standard of food-to-go generally and it seems to be creating great excitement. On a recent trip to America you can imagine my excitement when I not just discovered […]
