A Meaty Supper Club, by Meat Porter

What Meat Porter Supper Club at London City Island by Ballymore Experience Meat Porter is an online artisan butchers which sources and delivers great quality cuts of free-range British farmed meat to your door. It’s been done before but I have found most of these services expensive and inconvenient, with impractical minimum orders; but the ethos behind Meat Porter is much simpler. Founder Stefan Porter uses the same farmers who supply high quality meat to some of Britain’s best restaurants so that you can have a fine dining experience at home for a price that roughly equates to shopping at Tesco’s Finest or Waitrose. Minimum orders are £25, they deliver to pretty much anywhere in the UK for free and if you order before 3pm you will get it the next day. You can have it delivered to work and the meat keeps cool in the box for up to 30 hours. Sounds easy! Each box comes with some simple recipes based on the premise that the best meat requires only minimal seasoning and the …

HotBox, Spitalfields

Where HotBox London, Spitalfields What A regular in the pop up scene, HotBox has held residencies at Street Feast in Dalston, Hawker House and Battersea Power Station; however, on the 4th of December it opened it’s doors to its first permanent site at 46-48 Commercial St. The Experience After a hard day’s work on Thursday, Hannah and I could have been likened to William Wallace in Braveheart. Having made our bid for freedom, the night didn’t exactly get off to a good start; as we crossed the road outside Liverpool street, I was hit by a bike. As I scrambled to get my phone, some hunk from Dirty Martini scooped me up and bandaged up my leg. I didn’t think it was the time and place to offer him my number, but I’m thinking a thank you card might be appropriate. It didn’t take long to get patched up and we soon arrived at Hotbox, an effortlessly cool new meaty restaurant with red lights, straight lines and dark furniture. The staff were lovely and greeted us …

Recipe: Muntjac Meatballs

I arrived in Melbourne 6 days ago and have found that I have a lot of time on my hands at the moment while I look for work. Despite feeling a little lost without a job to head to every morning, it has been good in many ways, mainly due to the fact that I can cook breakfast and dinner every single day! I saw this recipe on Foodsessed and tried Mike Robinson’s Muntjac meatballs yesterday, but as muntjac (a small deer) is so hard to find, we used lamb mince instead. Recipe For the Muntballs 250g (8.81 ounce) minced Muntjac – I used lamb 250g (8.81 ounce) Ricotta cheese 100g (3.52 ounce) finely grated Parmesan cheese A little grated lemon zest One egg Salt to taste For the sauce Two large jars of good quality Passata A man size knob of butter Three smashed cloves of garlic Salt to taste A pinch of sugar to sweeten things up A sprinkle of fresh basil to finish Grated nutmeg to finish I used the following inforgraphic …

Bones, Kingsland Road

Where Bones, Kingsland Road What A new all-day restaurant from Joff and Simeon Goodman, the guys behind the fabulous organic and fairtrade store, The Grocery. Situated on Kingsland Road, the restaurant showcases dishes both off and on-the-bone, be it falling off, braised, racked, rotisseried, just picked, pulled or plucked. The experience For me, Kingsland Road has been a go to place for many things; whether that be a cocktail at Jaguar Shoes, a dance at Catch, or a delicious hearty Vietnamese meal at one of the many Vietnamese restaurants on the strip. But now, I shall remember it as an awesome place to go whenever I have a meat craving. I visited Bones a few weeks ago and tried what felt like most of the dishes on offer. There are dishes to share and we tried an amazing Tuscan panzanella salad with tomato, roasted red onions, croutons and garlic and roasted aubergine with feta, pomegranate, chilli and tahini dressing. We also shared the amazing burrata starter with basil oil, chilli flakes and sourdough bread, plus …
