I am not a vegetarian...

...nor did I marry one, need I say more?

Well actually I do. This gorgeous hunk of beef is from the Ginger Pig, my favourite butcher in London. In fact, it is one of the things I will miss most about London when we leave. Without a doubt, the Ginger Pig's porky products are excellent (please please please try their Gloucester Old Spot bacon before you die. Oh and their sausage roll is a thing of beauty, too), with their products coming from their own farms up North. However, all the other meat is pretty top notch, too. This rib of beef is one example and all my guests were well pleased with the goose I bought for Christmas supper (which left me with a litre jar of goose fat, hurrah!). Poulet Anglais, my favourite chicken breed, is sold there as well.

If I ever have the money to build a house, I will copy their cold room and have animal carcasses hanging there, ready and waiting. Beautiful!

Run, don't walk, to have a look for yourself.

I’d like to seek your help in my dissertation research and would really appreciate it if would agree to this. It only involves either an online interview or filling in a survey.

If you could give me your email address (either by replying to this comment or emailing me at amoebamoron@gmail.com), we can liaise from there. Thank you very much!

Hi Mona, Yes do pass the word along and I hope you get a chance to visit it yourself!

Santos, all your friends here are veggies? How can that be?! When are you here so we can be carnivores together?

Daffy, I've sent you an email, hopefully I can help one way or another...
