Almost two years back said girl and myself got married; which has been completely awesome - she’s great, and supremely supporting for someone finding herself forced into the periphery of the butchery game. We’ve both been saying for years that we have to get back there - given our shared love of River Cottage and English culture in general is a tragedy it’s taken us as long as it has. Why am I telling you this? Well, work schedules have finally aligned and one month hence we’re off on a well-deserved honeymoon to the UK
My plan for this “definitely not work related” vacation is to “definitely not spend my time dragging my long suffering wife from butcher shop to butcher shop” in this mecca of old school meat shops. Now, Google Analytics tells me that my second largest readership contingent (so like, 12 of you) is from the UK and I’m guessing you intelligent, beautiful readers might have some inside knowledge about the butchery scene across the pond. I’m on the lookout for any and all recommendations for butcher shops that I should “happen to wander across” when we’re there. We’re flying into London and out of Edinburgh with the majority of our time spent in Dorset and Devon - time which will include dinner and a meat course at River Cottage!!!
So if you know of a can’t miss butcher shop that we, well, can’t miss, shoot me a line at Bill@Themeatcase.com or leave a comment. I'll happily repay you in the form of delicious ale. In any event, expect lots of pictures come the beginning of September.
