“OUT TO PASTURE” BEEF is the newest addition to the already fabulous products available in Suffolk. As a chef, I couldn’t be more excited to

introduce this to you… The Thickitt family from Clarkes of Bramfield have paired up with the Crickmore family of Fen Farm, home of the award winning Baron Bigod Brie, to bring to you their grass fed, slow growth retired, Montbeliarde dairy cattle. I want you to think a beefier beef, this is quite frankly the biggest flavour I have seen in British beef to this date. “Out to pasture” beef brings a complexity to Suffolk beef that is sure to become a favourite in restaurants and homes alike. Clarkes master butchers have dry aged this well bred mature beef for 45 days before jointing, which has coaxed the depth of rich flavour and succulence that is a pleasure to cook with. To celebrate this lovely product this month I’m doing a slow braised feather blade of beef and a 20 hour roast of topside; there is robust richness in both of these methods of cooking that brings out the best in this product and pairs so well with a nice glass of red wine. Roast heritage carrots and a sauce from the braising juices brings out a simplicity that pays homage to this new addition of Suffolk beef.

Ingredients - serves about 4

For the Braised Feather of “Out to Pasture” Montbeliarde Beef

• 1kg feather blade of beef • 2 diced onions • 2 diced carrots • 1 stalk diced celery • 1 head of garlic • stalks rosemary • 3 star anise • 1.5L light stock • 1tbs tomato puree • 1tbs black pepper • Maldon sea salt to taste

For the 20 hour slow roast of “Out to Pasture”

Montbeliarde Beef • 1kg corner cut topside of beef (my family’s favourite cut) • thyme & sea salt

For the Heritage Carrot • 1kg mix heritage carrot peeled • 1 sprig thyme

• 1tbs butter for roasting Method

For the Braised Feather of “Out to Pasture” Montbeliarde Beef

Seal the feather of beef in a hot pan, browning all sides, then place in an oven proof dish with all the ingredients, ensuring the shoulder is covered with the stock. We bring this up to a slow simmer then cover and place in a moderately hot oven, 180ºC for approximately 4 hours until the meat is fork tender. Remove the feather of beef from the braising liquor, cool slightly so you can handle the meat, then roll in cling film to shape into a uniform log, then chill to set. Once cooled, cut in to uniform pieces and reserve. When ready to serve panfry to a nice golden colour ensuring the meat is warmed through, baste with butter and reserve for plating.

For the heritage carrots Heritage carrots are so beautiful, especially when simply peeled and roasted with butter and

thyme. I can’t think of anything that pairs better with beef.

For the 20 hour slow roast of “Out to Pasture” Beef

Seal your beef in a hot pan with thyme and sea salt and then place on a roasting tray. The secret to this cut is the lowest of low cooking, temperatures around 57ºC. This is an effort in patience that will be rewarded ten fold. We roast our beef to pink at The Boarding House Dining Rooms; this allows for the most tender succulent beef topside ever. Absolute perfection! Carve when ready to plate.

Gents Productions present: Earnest by Oscar Wilde 7.30pm. Oscar Wilde. Two actors. What could possibly go wrong? “The Importance of Being Earnest” is Oscar Wilde’s classic, witty and laugh out loud comedy of mistaken identities, confusion and cucumber sandwiches. On the surface it’s a light, fluffy jibe at the nonsensicalness of the rich and

upper class. At a deeper level, it is also a profound plea for sincerity & caring in the face of adversity. Imagining a thoroughly diverse and integrated English society, two British-African women play all characters and bring to life this 19th century comedy of manners in an at once mocking and lovingly playful tone. Embracing wild wit, deft humour, role swapping and banter with the audience, they unfurl a riot of love, confusion and high jinks. A perfect show for anyone ready for a good night out, looking for a bit of comedy and entertainment, hankering for a fresh take on a classic play or simply a fan of good theatre. This includes adults of all ages, young adults and children from the age of 11 and above. Performed by Ayesha Casely-Hayford and Kudzanayi Chiwawa directed by Tonderai Munyevu and Arne Pohlmeier. This performance is “pay what you decide” book your tickets beforehand but part with NO money until after you have seen the show.
