Next Thursday, on 12th October, Turner & George will be kicking off a brand-new collaboration at our butcher’s shop, with our next-door neighbours, Made In Little France; who are an independent outlet, specialising in importing fine wines from across the channel. Not forgetting to mention numerous varieties of Gallic beer, spirits and bottles of champagne.

To signal the start of our partnership, where T&G will be selling bottles of an exclusive wine from Made in Little France each month, we are inviting friends and customers alike to EC1, for an educational evening of wine and meat tasting. Furthermore, 12 spots are up for grabs for a personalised, in-depth workshop.

Kicking off at 7:30PM, those lucky enough to get a place will be given a glass of Château Truquet - a vibrant Saint-Émilion from Bordeaux - and treated to a butchery masterclass by Head Butcher, John Darlingnash. As he breaks down a forequarter of beef, we will also be giving cookery tips and suggestions for each cut along the way. All culminating in the prime cut that is the rib eye steak.


We will all then head next door, where owner Max will be on standby to talk a little bit more about the wine, the character, the terroir and no doubt glasses will be charged. To gain a deeper understanding and appreciation and to warm the cockles, as it might be a bit nippy out.

Then it’s out to the back, where a BBQ will be quietly but fiercely roaring away on the open terrace. Ready to receive some handsome aged rib eye, to char and smoke, before resting and slicing.

After that, well, it’s a simple case of sampling the meat along with some more wine. Showcasing what we think is a match made in heaven. And an uncomplicated one at that.

To be in with the chance of attending the workshop at Turner & George, all you have to do is register and click for tickets on our Eventbrite page here

Remember though, spaces are limited.

However, if you would just like to come down to Made In Little France, sample some great wine, try our renowned meat and generally soak up the atmosphere, you can also register on the page.

We look forward to seeing you there.
