Yeah, fat

Got this fatty flavoursome New Zealand diced lamb shoulder at a knock down price.

Chucked in the pressure cooker with plenty of garlic, onion, spices, curry powder, home made chicken stock and some organic gelatine strips. All ready in 40 mins. Served with basmati rice.

Venison bone broth

Wild fallow deer, neck bones. Just slow cooked in water with onion, vinegar and juniper berries.

After 24+ hours, took the bones out and was left with a meaty broth. Great base for a couple of portions of hearty soup.

Paella - sort of

Paella rice, with some leftover chicken and other bits and pieces. Added my homemade chicken stock straight from the freezer.

Healthy pud
Full fat Greek yoghurt, banana, blueberries and raw organic cacao nibs.

Vintage basmati and beef liver

Who knew that basmati improved with age…. 2006 vintage, very expensive but bought at a bargain price. Served with sliced free range organic beef liver fried with onion, mushrooms and grain mustard. Lots of powerful flavours going on here.

Hereford beef fillet steaks

What an absolute bargain, got these for £2.70 instead of £16!! Just being at the right place at the right time. Cooked just a few minutes, so rare and juicy and the knife cut through them like butter.

Served with celeriac mash, onion, mushrooms and tender stemmed broccoli.

Treat time

I love Waitrose…. raw unpasteurised Cheshire cheese and Morecambe Bay shrimps (covered in a thick set layer of butter, cooked with spices, nothing else), both normally expensive but both reduced in price. Great for lunch.

Local piggy tenderloin sweet and sour

Fresh from a local smallholder.

Sliced up this beautiful piece of tenderloin and fried in organic red palm oil with onion, garlic, pepper, lots of ginger, rice syrup, sweet potato and carrot. Added tinned tomatoes, vinegar and some wheat-free soy sauce. Pressure cooked for about half an hour. Really sweet and spicy flavour, served with organic basmati rice, brussels and vinegar.

A light snack

Lightly cooked asparagus, a knob of French butter and drizzle of balsamic. Beats a bag of crisps any day.

Rainbow salad

Lamb’s lettuce, a mashed up goose egg with butter, tinned wild pink salmon and other goodies. Kept me going for the whole day.

Mega egg

Bought some goose eggs from a local smallholder at an indoor market just up the road.

Highly recommended…. huge but hugely satisfying. Boiled for 10 minutes then mashed up with some organic ghee. Beyond delicious.

Also bought some leeks from the same guy, freshly picked that morning. Local seasonal produce at its best.

Seaweed?
Partly, but mostly this is kale. Simmered in home made bone broth with sundried tomatoes and arame seaweed.

Beef liver

This is some of the liver I bought from the Weston A Price Foundation conference - free range, grass fed beef. Such a cheap price as it’s not everybody’s favourite, so I bought a load, divided it up and froze.

Much stronger in flavour than lamb’s liver but I sliced it up small, fried with onion, turmeric and chilli and served with parsnip mash and chard.

Not a bad meal, but then I like liver…
