A Bone to Pick

We are gently losing the habit of cooking with bones, as the supermarket pre-packed meats of dubious origin mean that many people don’t know how to cook, carve or serve meat with a bone in, and are put off.  But the benefits of bones are indisputable. With whole carcass butchery, … Read More
