For the Cooks

  • Skosh Slow Roast Cull Yow

    Skosh Slow Roast Cull Yow Joint

    Our Third For the Cooks Project is Skosh Slow Roast Cull Yow.

    Produced by the Award Winning Neil Bentinck of Skosh, York. The recipe uses Neils’s approach to Himalayan Salt Aged Cull Yow.

    R & J have worked closely with Neil, supplying him in esteemed restaurants such as Northcote, Pipe & Glass and The Star Inn at Harome & Van Zeller’s. Subsequently, Neil opened Skosh in 2016. The restaurant has gone on to win many awards, helping place York firmly on the culinary map.

    Approx 1.5kg piece of boneless Cull Yow shoulder or leg

    Our Recommended Cooking Instructions:

    Neil Bentinck’s Slow Roast Cull Yow with ‘Pepper fry’ sauce, Pickled onion & Pomegranate

    ‘This rich and peppery curry recipe sure livens up the old taste buds! With fresh, colourful accompaniments, it’s a great alternative to your traditional Roast Meats!

    ‘Pepper fry’ is a south Indian curry from The Keralan region, traditionally using beef but works fantastically with other strong rich meats such as Cull Yow. The curry would always be served as a one pot dish, meat and sauce together, but at the restaurant, we separate the 2 to allow the full flavour of the fantastic meat and fat to shine through but still allowing the flavours to complement each other. This recipe is great served with some traditional Indian breads too – I prefer parathas or chapattis.

    The Skosh Slow Roast Cull Yow recipe serves 4 – 6 people, to receive the full recipe card please order and we will post it with the joint.

  • Salt Aged Large Cornish Red Chicken & Pancetta

    If you are looking for a delicious spring led Easter meal why not try this amazing Roast Chicken recipe from Liz Cottam.

    The recipe uses a specially selected Salt Aged Cornish Red Chicken (Poulard), pancetta and delicious seasonal pickled and roasted vegetables. Our hand-selected chickens have to contain the right fat covering, enabling us to age them in our Himalayan salt chamber. This process enhances the flavour of this already delicious chicken.

    The free-range chicken comes with 500g of Italian pancetta alongside a unique recipe card. The ingredients you will need are listed here.

     

    We have proudly supplied Liz over the past 5 years across all of her restaurants, and we are always in awe of her recipes and cooking style. Liz has played a key role in helping develop the exciting Leeds food scene

    Her most recent venture of Cora gained inclusion into this year’s Michelin guide within its first year. Liz is also behind the restaurant Home & The Owl both in Leeds, and even though super busy running these restaurants Liz has kindly found the time, to share one of her favourite recipes that use Yorkshires Finest ingredients.

    Barnsley Chops (Pack of 2)

    Barnsley Chops are a great example of Yorkshire’s fantastic food heritage & provenance.

    “A big chop, a real chop. You know, a Barnsley chop”

    The Barnsley chop is a cut that offers flavour, texture and heritage all in one chop. The chop contains two pieces of lamb fillet and two pieces of loin, delicately nestled on the bone with a section of the belly for good measure.

    The origins of the Barnsley chop stretch back to the mid-1800s when it is suggested a group of Yorkshire Farmers requested a larger/proper Yorkshire Lambchop during market days. From this, the Barnsley chop was born, becoming a celebration of Yorkshire Lamb and food provenance.

    We only select the finest Yorkshire Lambs from across this fine historic county.

    Yorkshire Lamb is farmed on lush hillside grasslands perfect for sheep, not crops. Sheep farming has taken place in Yorkshire for centuries. As a result, the landscape is marked by drystone walls that have kept the sheep secure for centuries. Most Importantly their diet of Yorkshire grass creates a wonderful flavour. We age our lamb on the bone for 7-14 days to create a wonderful texture.

    Yorkshire Lamb is currently on some of the finest restaurant tables across the UK, consequently, we are proud to offer you the same quality product to cook and enjoy at home.

    Recommended cooking instructions:
    • Allow the Barnsley Chops to come to room temperature and pat dry
    • Pan fry in a hot pan for 2 minutes per side and one minute on the fat side
