Fairwell to Edward and Bella...



This week Edward and Bella are off to embrace a colder climate. It is hard to believe that they are just over 2 years old. Dispatched quickly whilst eating hand-picked organic apples from a barrel, we know that there are no ethical concerns about the origins of our dinners to come...



Edward (above) and Bella (below).


Hard to believe they were just scrawny little calves 2 years ago...


We had said that we hoped they would grow up to resmble beasts like this...


I don't think they are too far off...




Edward was always the dumb one, though rather noble looking, and Bella the intelligent one, inqusitive and always a handful...






Peter has been reading through one of his favourite cook books and licking his lips as he turns the pages...


... trying to decide which cuts he wants. Other than a jolly decent steak and a few roasts, I am looking forwards to oodles of prime mince, so that Peter can make the most of the Soggy Bottom Farm sausage-making course I sent him on last year for his birthday. Gourmet bangers here we come....




Now we've conquered home grown beef, I wonder what's for Christmas dinner this year...


For the faint hearted vegetarians out there, there is always another option...



With Willowbrook's Kitchen we could run weekend cookery classes, and even put out our own cookbook...

(Mock up spoof using an old Reader's Digest Cookbook Cover)


Hopefully they would be more successful than some of Delia's classes...

  1. I notice that Hugh F W has converted to vegetarianism; well maybe only for this Christmas. I did used to enjoy watching his Rose Cottage series, way back in the day. Your beasts to "colder climes" indeed!

  2. I think I may have misspelled that: vegetarianism...
