THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED
I still marvel at the Internet. I’ve always been a bit of a technology geek and I distinctly remember the time when the Internet was first installed at home. I would sit in my dad’s study for hours at a time browsing and talking to friends on MSN (sad I know). But at the time I never would have imagined that I would be buying clothes, holidays and even food from the comfort of my own home. Technology never ceases to amaze me.
I’ve been toying with the idea of buying meat, fish and vegetables online for a while. After my trip to Riverford Organic Farm earlier in the year, I realised what a great way it is to shop. But having never taken the plunge to buy meat online before, I was happy to be contacted a few months back by Westin Gourmet, an online butchers that provides consumers with good quality cuts of meat at wholesale prices.
I decided to test a few of the products and offer one lucky Food For Think reader the chance to win a 2.5kg Australian topside beef joint worth £36 just in time for that all important Christmas dinner! See here for details of the Westin GOurmet Christmas range.
I held a dinner party at my house on Saturday and was able to serve a feast for eight people. Having never attempted to cook such a big piece of meat before, the size was a little daunting. But after following some rather good instructions from the BBC website, the meat came out of the oven rare, juicy, utterly tender and it went down a treat. The perfect centerpiece for any roast, I can’t recommend it enough. There was even some left over for a beef and horseradish sandwich the next day.
