Do not adjust your screens and if the title of this blog post has just caused you to choke on your afternoon lockdown preprandial - please accept our apologies in advance

Yes, what follows is a recipe for salad but we did actually mention this one a couple of weeks back, when we were trumpeting the arrival of deckle online.

Hell, there is even a clue in the title and in the words of Mr Turner himself - 'This is the steak salad to end all steak salads.'

So don't panic. We are all still reading from the same script and carrying forth the message, that everyone should have the opportunity to eat meat that has been ethically reared. We are not going to start selling sprouting seeds and quinoa. Not just yet.

Before we proceed though, we would just like to take the opportunity once again to thank for your custom during this busy period. We would also like to remind you to keep an eye on socials and our dedicated page - as tweaks to our service are still being made from time to time.

If you do have a query, please do email us at, as you will get a faster response.

There are also lots of exciting new projects in the pipeline, so keep an eye out for further announcements.

Now, let's get down to this STEAK salad*
