Meat Prep and Cookery
At The Woodspeen we believe that a good understanding of traditional butchery skills give the cook an advantage for getting the most out of each cut. Just as important as the skill to prep is the skill to cook and we will run through time and temperature to cook your meat perfect every time. From keeping your stews and casseroles tasty with the meat being moist and tender, we’ll be breaking down chicken, duck and cooking lamb and beef, explaining the cuts as we go along and the best cooking methods to use.
