Local Food Treasures at Oxtail & Trotter

With temperatures dropping and leaves falling we are now truly into Autumn. 

The game season is now well underway and Oxtail & Trotter have their first delivery of local pheasant being delivered Tuesday!  

This bird is not only stunning to look at but is exceptional to eat. The key to cooking it is not to overcook it! If you are fed up with chicken and crave a piece of meat with a more robust kick to it, then look no further than pheasant.  

In season from now until January, it makes for a rich, intensely flavoured alternative, perfect for wintery evenings, accompanied with seasonal winter vegetables and a full-bodied glass of red wine.

We will be selling oven-ready pheasants from a local estate from now until late January and also oven-ready partridges. Get your Pheasant and Partridge recipes out now!

Alarm bells rung at this point and I told him I would need him to answer a couple of...

Now listen up you Golden Oldies and Living Legends. Has it ever crossed your mind  how you would fair if confronted by having to take your driving test again? I'll bet it has and you have shuddered and dismissed the idea. Very natural and I am right with you. Except that I fell into the trap twice.   A few years ago (not many) I decided that it might be a good idea to...
