Butchery Night - 15/11/2013
Our Head Butcher, John Brereton and our Restaurant Manager, Ben Crouch hosted a wonderful evening at Ludlow Kitchen on Friday November 15th. Butchery Night was a firm favourite with over 40 diners enjoying our estate reared meat. John had beef, Gloucester Old Spot pork and venison in his counter and diners could choose how much they wanted. The Ludlow Kitchen team led by, Head Chef, Damien McNamara then cooked their choice to perfection.
We plan to have more special and themed nights at Ludlow Kitchen so please keep an eye on the website for more details. If you want the best Christmas meal made with entirley local ingredients then please call Ben on 01584 856 020 to book your table.
Making Sausages At Ludlow Junior School - 03/10/2013
Ludlow Junior School had a farmers market and we were invited to join in the fun. John, our head butcher, had the idea of getting some of the children to make sausages. We took our Gloucester Old Spot minced pork, some seasoning, water and breadcrumbs to teach the children how real sausages are made and they loved it. Each child got a chance to make a length of sausage and then they were shown how to twist and loop the sausages. At the end they all had enough to take home and enjoy with their families.
The Great Shropshire Bake Off - 01/10/2013
This new competition saw entries from all over the county being entered in a variety of tasty sweet and savoury categories. We decided to enter our new Gloucester Old Spot, Ludlow Blue and Sweet Onion Confit Sausage Roll, our Pecan Tart and our Victoria Sponge. Our bakers make a fantastic Victoria Sponge that has won many awards in the past but sadly this was not their event. However, both the Sausage Roll and the Pecan Tart took bronze medals which means a big congratulations to our kitchen team.
Estate Map - 30/09/2013
We have recently added a great new map just outside the Food Centre. It details the various points of interest on our Oakly Park Estate and was artworked by Phil Kenning who is based in Shropshire. The map is a water colour and is surrounded by water colour images of the Food Centre, Ludlow Kitchen, our churches and many more. Make sure you take a look next time you visit.
