I know it's a bit early, but I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations for turkey suppliers maybe at Borough Market.
As its my first Christmas in SE1 and I am cooking I want to get as much stuff as possible from the market.
How does it work, do you have to order a bird in advance?
A great place to go is Suffolk Meats, 156 Great Suffolk Street tel 0207 403 2851. We've been getting our Chrismas meat and everything else including barbecue stuff from Bill's for a few years now. You can preorder and tell him what size bird you want and when for. You'll pay a much more reasonable price than in the market. The capon we got last year was superb!
I second the recommendation for Suffolk Meats. We got our turkey there last year and it was very good and only about £13 for a turkey that fed six people and lots of post-christmas sandwiches. They will order the size you want and are good for people like me who don't know weights and just go "ooh, about so big"!
How about a Bernard Matthews frozen economy turkey, served with a ready-prepared frozen brussel sprouts, washed down with a glass or two of Blue Nun. All for under a fiver at your local Iceland, Kwik-Save or Aldis.
Did anyone else hear about the Waitrose food scare the other day?
Funny you should say that-Bernard Matthews is incredibly popular with our kitten- as soon as the fridge door opens she tries to jump in and search for it.
Don't think my parents would be particularly happy if I served that up on xmas day though!
