Britain's best butchers celebrated at Paternoster Chop House

Bel-Air brings wholesome LA-fare to Farringdon with their second branch

A London restaurant is putting on a two week carnivore's menu that sounds like the kind of thing Parks and Recreation's Ron Swanson would heartily approve of. For two weeks this September, Paternoster Chophouse (aka the First Dates restaurant) will be showcasing the work of Britain's best butchers.

The six butchers from around the country - who are collectively known as the British Beefeaters - who are involved, will also be representing Great Britain in the 2020 World Butchers’ Challenge. They are, Michael Dufton (Knitsley Farm Shop); Mark Ramsay (Falleninch Farm Butchers, Stirling); Simon Taylor (Surrey Hills Butchers, Oxshott); Bryce Lawson (McMurchie Meats, Hetton-le-Hole, County Durham), Team Captain, Tom Wood (Tom Wood Artisan Butchers Ltd, Blackburn) and Jess Leliuga (Ye Olde Sausage Shop in Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire).

Together they've come up with a meaty menu that'll be paired alongside a series of Jura whisky cocktails. There'll be five dishes on offer - available for lunch and dinner and they are as follows:

  • Smoked baby back short ribs with whiskey sauce
  • Braised shin of Dexter beef, baked chilli butter bone marrow, bordelaise sauce
  • Roast pork fillet, black pudding, smoked apple & lardo
  • Grilled rib of Hereford beef, bull cut
  • Rack of Colne Valley Lamb, Cannon & Cannon chorizo & spinach stuffing (2 to share)
