Nothing beats a Beef Wellington
A Butcher's Trade
"Keep it simple", says Leigh… but only the King cut can be used for this recipe!
Whose the King? Why the fillet of course and not just any fillet, Dry Aged Full Breed Angus King.
And how do you tell a good King? You look for the tiny flecks of fat that run through the middle of the fillet. A centre cut fillet is required for the job of a Wellington.
It's Fair Game...
I met Leigh in May 2017 a few months after the Cobham Store opened and I’ve learned more about meat than I could possibly imagine.
Another word for Game is Quarry. The word Game originates from the old English term Gamen which means joy, merriment, sport and dates back to the 13th century.
Many a game stew uses bacon for some saltiness, we prefer to keep it really gamey. But we do recommend adding a splash of frutiness to the mix, a splash of port and some zesty orange should do the trick.
