1. Braised Shin Of Beef

    Braised Shin Of Beef

    Recipes
    We have approached this particular cut before and if you look back in the annals of time, this recipe that pairs up beef shin with macaroni is still a blinder. However, approaches towards beef shin do have a tendency to hide or tuck it away. Quite often it is diced up for stews or pies and left unrecognisable, all flaked up...

    Meat Myth Busting - Part 1

    General
    Below is a piece that one of our former butchers, Tom Cripps, wrote for us last year - as part of a project to challenge certain perceptions about meat and to formulate a T&G Nutrition Box for our customers. Having begun new partnerships with the likes of Monday Muscle and seeing a strong drive in sales for our high...

    Don't Spare The Horseradish (And Other Suggested Condiments For Beef)

    General
    Last week, we ran a poll on social media for research purposes and to gauge customers opinions on the things that really matter. It's something that we often carry out, as observing trends, exploring surveys and tapping into the latest zeitgeist around meat is important to us. It is, after all, what we do. On this occasion, the basis of the...

  7. Dumplings: A Brief History

    Dumplings: A Brief History

    General Recipes
    On this blog, it is very rare that we'll let anything else other than meat be presented as the main star on the plate. We are butchers after all, are we not? But there are some exceptions and sometimes, just sometimes, we will push forward and elevate a delectable morsel that is not animal in origin. In this case...
  8. Curried Short Ribs

    Curried Short Ribs

    Recipes

But it had gone beyond the pale, turned a touch sharp and despite best efforts, it just wasn't quite right to drink. However, when it comes to prepping slow cuts - such as...

    Richard H. Turner's Spag Bol

    General Recipes By Richard H Turner
    Two things separate my spag bol from the thousands of versions out there. For one, I don't use spaghetti! Flat pasta is much better suited to meat sauces, so it's flat pasta that I use. Second, I toss my cooked pasta in a Parmesan and butter emulsion, creating a separate sauce around it, before topping withe the meat sauce. ...

    Try something slightly different for your Sunday roast

    General
    We don't really do whimsy at Turner & George but now that the sun is beginning to dip a little earlier in the day - spreading long shadows and casting a deep, amber glow across slate rooftops and over newly ploughed fields - we can't help but feel a warm, fuzzy glow in our tummies. For that means autumn is...
