With the arrival of summer the call of the BBQ can be heard across the UK. We love a good barbecue at Forman & Field, which is why we take special delight in being able to offer a selection of sumptuous meats and mouth-watering accompaniments.
As any red-blooded male will earnestly inform you, no barbecue is complete without steak. Our ‘Greatest British Beef Steak Tasting Box’ contains some of the finest British steaks from Britain’s top producers – making it the perfect choice for grill parties.
Whether it’s the 28-day-aged Longhorn beef of The Ginger Pig or the oh-so-tender rump steaks from the Lake District Farmers, our sophisticated steak selection will satisfy and delight.
British sausages are another staple at any self-respecting grill session. Our Ginger Pig pork sausages are made with belly and shoulder pork together with a tasty blend of nutmeg, mace, sage, rosemary and thyme – the perfect way to feed large groups. Also try our luxury burgers, which are all made with pure Welsh beef.
Those who prefer white meat will adore our Rhug Estate organic chicken fillets. During their lives the birds are fed on clover-rich pastures in a stress-free environment, resulting in unrivalled tenderness and texture.
Moving beyond the classic BBQ fodder, some of our more adventurous BBQ ideas include free-range duck. Our supplier provides duck that is reared on a low-density GM-free diet that is completely free of antibiotics and growth hormones.
The ultimate in outdoor cooking is, of course, the suckling pig. Get one of these on the go and spontaneous applause may ensue – especially when the assembled guests come to taste it. Our supplier, Pugh’s Piglets, is used to supplying some of the UK’s top restaurants.
Barbecues aren’t just about the meat, however. How about lightening things up with a loaf of organic walnut or wholemeal sourdough bread? Or a cute little jar of spiced red cabbage? Any vegetarians in attendance would no doubt appreciate the delicate flavours of our artichoke and mushroom parcels and the attention to detail that marks our handmade leek, spinach and ricotta quiches.
Indulging in an afternoon tipple is a great part of the tradition of British barbecues. While other cultures consider beer to be the drink of choice, our robust Biddenden Dornfelder red wine is the ideal accompaniment for summertime snacking, while the Chapel Down Union can handle the richest of meats.
For those who prefer the lighter fragrances of a Rosé, our Bolney Estate Rosé 2010 is hard to beat. The most BBQ-friendly of our whites is the Chapel Down Chardonnay – its steely acidity works to provide a refreshing palate cleanser. But don’t just believe us – the British-made wine won a bronze medal at last year’s Decanter World Wine Awards.
To really set the taste buds a-tingling, try our horseradish flavoured vodka – a unique blend that is made in Somerset from organic vodka distilled in London. This perfectly compliments beef, meaning that with all that Forman & Field has to offer, you can enjoy a truly all round British barbecue.
