Another Farm Walk and BBQ
Yesterday we played host to around 30 guests from the hotel, catering and meat wholesale trade, to let them have the chance to get up close and personal with cattle, and learn a bit about farming. The event was organised by the fantastic team at AHDB Beef and Lamb, so after the farm walk a cattle handling class took place along with a technical talk on meat, and then a fantastic butchery demo. For this I provide a 27kg single piece of grass fed Hereford beef which inclued all the best bits, Rib to Rump including the fillet and sirloin. The butcher took us all throught the different cuts and options and produced Rib eye steaks, Cote du Beouf, Bistro Rump steaks, Picania steaks, Sirloin steaks, spatchcocked Fillet tails etc. Then all the steaks were laid out and it was a free for all to pick a steak and cook it to your likeing on the BBQ. What luxury! Amazingly virtually all the meat went which meant than no one went away hungry (and quite alot full to bursting). A great day thanks to all at AHDB Beef and Lamb.
