It’s nearly that time of the year again for lovely meals, feasts and festivities with friends and families. Yes Christmas is just around the corner.
For a lot of people Christmas Dinner is all about a Roast with lots of people eating the traditional Turkey. But there are other alternatives – such as Goose, Pork or even Rib of Beef perhaps.
Christmas Day falls on a Thursday this year so we will be closing on Wednesday 24th Dec and re-opening on Monday 29th Dec please click here for opening times.
Planning meals ahead makes life easier and run smoother and as we want to help you organise your meals and help make the holiday break run smoothly M&K have order forms ready to collect from the shop.
Carving meat at a meal is an ancient tradition and it was the man of the house who did the honours, as a throwback to the days when they brought home fresh kill for the feast. Centuries ago carving was governed by protocol and ceremony – and even in 1947 in ‘Practical Cookery for All’ the writer said,
“Carving is, to a certain extent, a lost art. This is a pity because carving helps to make a joint go further, and well carved meat has a much better flavour than meat that is hacked from the bones in untidy chunks.”
As much as that claim could be disputed, re the taste of the meat, it is a well-known fact that you start eating with your eyes. So with this in mind get your carving knives sharpened so you can do justice to the meat you choose from us for your Christmas Day meal!
