Love it or hate it? I had to try it!
Not living quite so close to “That London” I do not get the opportunities to try things out as I used to, so as we were in town for that sporting event, (London Olympics – a brilliant, superbly organised, just the best, fantastic event and experience) we managed to sneak over to Marylebone to try out Meat Liquor.
I’ve been a big fan and follower of Yanni and The Meat Wagon but I’ve heard some mixed reviews on Meat Liquor, mainly the big queues outside in the cold or the don’t care attitude of the staff, well we experienced neither and couldn’t find fault! Visited on a Sunday tea time, no queue, very pleasant and helpful waiter, The dirty diner food lived up to expectations and the bill for five people surprisingly good for That London.
We skipped the Rabbit Food section of the menu and between us enjoyed Chilli Cheese Fries – artery clogging good, deep fried pickles – wish I had ordered more always a problem when your sharing! Phili Cheese Fries - definitely didn’t get my share! Mushroom Swiss – all mine! Dead Hippie Burger – looked good and Cheeseburger’s. All really good quality dirty burgers, just as expected and devoured by all.
To Drink: Mojito’s and Vedett, cocktails served in jam jars and beer comes in the can! works perfectly with the venue decor and food but this is a cool burger joint and therefore not everyone’s cup of tea. If you don’t like calorie laden, American diner inspired street food served atmospherically! then you wont like it, I however loved it!

If there is a queue when you arrive, please join the back of it. In order to best serve all our guests we do not seat incomplete parties, this helps reduce waiting times by decreasing open tables.
We are a restaurant.
Two of my favourite things, coffee & gadgets! and with this new coffee maker from handpresso you can have both “the espresso machine for the car”.
This good looking gadget fits neatly in the glove box or in the cup holder in the car then plugs in to your car lighter socket, add cold water and a coffee capsule (ese type) and this gadget does the rest, a perfect espresso shot with crema in your car. Sounds great if your on the road a lot and can afford the price tag, approx €149 or £140.

Had a great laugh with some fab foodie friends at the Whitby War Weekend, brilliant fish from Rob Green of Green’s of Whitby, coffee & delicious cake from Cathy at VWLulabelles and a tasty beef stew from The Hungry Bassett….
Whitby Red Mullet with a Yorkshire Chorizo & Tomato Salad, Basil Oil
4 x Fillets of red mullet, scaled and pin boned
10 Chunky slices of Yorkshire chorizo sausage
2 x Shallots, peeled and sliced
2 x Large vine tomatoes, chopped into chunks
1 x Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 x cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced finely
100ml Virgin olive oil
Handful of fresh basil leaves
Salt and pepper
Cook the chorizo in a frying pan over a medium heat with a little of the oil until it browns and the oil turns a lovely red colour. (this is the fat rendering down from the sausage. The red colour is the paprika from the chorizo)
Add the garlic and cook for a further 30 seconds add balsamic vinegar and take from the heat.
Toss the tomatoes, shallots, Yorkshire chorizo and garlic and a tablespoon of the red oil / balsamic mixture left in the pan.
Put the rest of the virgin oil, basil,salt and pepper and a good squeeze of lemon juice into a bowl. Blend with a hand blender until the basil colours the oil.
Fry the mullet fillets, skin side down in a non stick pan for 2 mins over a medium heat. Flip over and cook for a further 30 seconds and remove from heat.
Drain the fish fillets on kitchen towel and set aside.
Place a nice pile of the dressed salad at the top of your plate and place the mullet fillets just below, fanned out. Drizzle some of the basil oil over and dress with a few baby leaves.

We have been busy putting the finishing touches to the new Butchery & Charcuterie building here on the farm and with “The Grand Opening” being filmed for “The Dales” Series 3 on ITV we had a deadline, the 11th of September 2012. We finished the electrics the night before at about 10pm! So just the stage to set and make everything look the part.
So we had a little party, invited a few friends & customers, made a little food, got some local beer, arranged for it to stop raining briefly and the Farm Butchery is now officially open!
The Food: Just Meat & Beer! a fairly wide selection of meats & charcuterie, Yorkshire Chorizo Scotch Eggs, a sous vide mutton curry, a selection of PÂTÉS, Oxford Sandy Black pork rillette, crepinettes, sausages, cured meats, Yorkshire bresaola, Yorkshire chorizo and even lardo and outside on the spit roast, sticky ribs and a mixed spit of Yorkshire Dales Beef, Lamb & Pork, prepared by Nigel & Marc-Frederic.
To Drink: a couple of barrels from Old Spot, Cullingworth O.S.B 4.5% abv and the delicious Inn-Spired 4.3%abv.
Ade “cut” the ribbon & said a few words but you will have to wait to see that on ITV in early 2013.

Well it’s that crazy week again leading up to Malham Show the highlight of the calendar here in Malhamdale, the house is a buzz with baking, handicrafts, show admin, schedules, entries and on the farm sheep are being washed, trimmed and generally pampered.
Malham Show takes place under the shadow of Malham Cove on Bank Holiday Saturday (August 25th for 2012).
My vegetables have been terrible this year so a reduced entry from me, but my homemade lemonade, pickles and chutney are made and ready for judging.
The Wildman Hogroast will be serving Malhamdale Oxford Sandy & Black Pork Sandwiches with crackling, homemade stuffing & apple sauce and if your on the showfield early enough try a Paganum Bacon Buttie!
In the Farmers Market you can buy local cakes, bread, ice cream, cheese and of course charcuterie from Paganum and Yorkshire Chorizo.
Lots to see and do on the showfield all day, first classes start at 9am and main ring attractions from 12 noon. A good show of cattle and sheep is guaranteed along with Heavy Horses and the iconic Malham Show Fell Race.
