Throw a Halloween Party

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015 in Foodie Articles, Good Food | No Comments »

Looking out my window today I watch as the elements enjoy a high octane party. Leaves are bobbing around on the wind, swept into swirling dancing groups, moving at a terrific pace into mini tornado shapes and then disappearing quickly past my first floor window. The sky is ominously dark and I have no doubt […]

Planning the Difference

Friday, March 20th, 2015 in Foodie Articles | No Comments »

While much of what I learned in school is buried deep in the mind’s recesses, probably never to see the light of day again, I still frequently go back to a saying by one of my teachers; “Proper planning prevents poor performance”.  He would refer to it as the 5 Ps.  Leaving aside the clever […]

Steak, Kidney and Mushroom Pie with a Marrowbone Funnel

Friday, February 6th, 2015 in Beef Recipes | No Comments »

This is a real showstopper, almost medieval in appearance. We’ve given a recipe for a rich bone marrow pastry, which is truly delicious, but you can use ready-made puff or savoury shortcrust, as long as it is an ‘all butter’ version. We won’t tell. The Irish brand “Roll It” is excellent. Steak, Kidney and Mushroom […]

James Whelan Butchers: Oxtail and Truffle Pizza

Monday, February 2nd, 2015 in Beef Recipes | No Comments »

This is another unusual and delicious pizza that makes a wonderfully stylish starter for a kitchen supper with friends. It’s a great way of using up those little jars of truffle paste and bottles of truffle oil that you buy on holiday in France or Italy and then leave to languish at the back of […]

James Whelan Butchers: Brined Beef Brisket on the Bone with Barbecue Sauce

Thursday, January 29th, 2015 in BBQ Recipes, Beef Recipes | No Comments »

This recipe is a labour of love that takes time but is well worth it. Do make it with a fine big piece of brisket so that you get the most out of your efforts. Brining the meat makes it very moist and juicy. Brined Beef Brisket on the Bone with Barbecue Sauce – Printer […]

James Whelan Butchers: Animals are what they eat

Monday, January 12th, 2015 in Foodie Articles | 1 Comment »

It had to happen at some stage but for someone in the meat business it was probably the best New Year’s gift and a great way to start 2015.  What am I talking about?  The small fact that there has been a dramatic swell in the research emerging from the US that confirms grass fed […]

James Whelan Butchers: Barbacoa Beef Cheeks

Friday, January 9th, 2015 in Beef Recipes | No Comments »

Beef cheeks are one of our favourite cuts. The meat is intense, full of robust flavour and has a richness that is not at all cloying. Don’t be put off by what might seem like a bizarre combination of ingredients; this recipe is a cinch, and it takes very little time to prepare. The recipe […]
