1. Roll up Little Jack Horner’s Sausage Rolls, £3 per roll Frome chef James Hughes Davies is on a roll with these meatilicious morsels. Gone are the days of limp pastry and questionable fi lling – this lot are big, fat and juicy. (Think pork and smoked chilli, or black pudding and apple.) Posh nosh for this summer’s alfresco picnic. Available at the monthly Frome Independent Market or online. ✱ www.ljhorners.com


2. Pot luck Fine Cheese Co ‘Street Food’ readymeals, from £1.95 per item We love cooking, obvs. But even we have days we can’t face the kitchen. Thankfully the chefs at The Fine Cheese Co on Walcot Street in Bath have been busy concocting a new monthly ‘Street Food’ menu


– actually, posh not-necessarily- cheese-based readymeals to take home. Beef stew with horseradish and potato dauphinoise, anyone? Available in store. ✱ www.fi necheese.co.uk


3. Box happy Riverford Quick & Easy Meat Box, £32.95 If you’ve neither the time or inclination to cook large joints, this box of goodies is the perfect package. Individual portions from a selection of free-range organic options – beef mince, chicken breasts, pork chops, steak, gluten-free pork sausages – will drop on your doorstep, ready to fi ll the freezer and be on hand for midweek feasts or sizzling weekend barbecues both. We slathered our lamb cutlets with homemade wild garlic pesto –


delicious, and it kept the house vampire-free. Available to order online, or add to your veg box delivery from South West teams. ✱ www.riverford.co.uk


4. Moo point Brown Cow Organics sirloin steaks, £33/kg Sheila Dillon and Hugh Fearnley- Whittingstall are fans, which is good enough for us. Somerset’s Perridge Farm originally bred cattle for dairy, then decided to produce organic beef as well (you can now buy their Guernsey hide slippers, and cowhide rugs too). It’s their meat we’re interested in, though, especially the organic sirloin steaks. There’s a decent marbling of fat, proper fl avour – and the eco packaging, when you order online, is impressive too. Next time we’ll be trying the 5kg freezer pack (with


12


a topside, pot roast, rump steak, braising steak and mince in the mix, all for £65). Available online, or click and collect at Brown Cow Organics’ home in Pilton. ✱ www.browncoworganics.co.uk


5. Saucy stuff The Bay Tree Moroccan Tagine Pouches, £3.15/300g If you’ve gone to the trouble of sourcing organic, rare-breed, hand- reared meat, then you want to cook it with top-notch ingredients. Trust Wincanton’s The Bay Tree to come up with a pair of tagine sauces this fi nger-licking good: rich, sweet and fruity for red meat, or fragrant with chicken, lemon, garlic and olive. Speedy suppers are but a pouch away! Available from White Row Farm, Beckington; Prior Park Garden Centre, Bath; or online. ✱ www.thebaytree.co.uk
