There are times during every festive season when you just don't know what you want.
You've had the turkey and all the trimmings, you've doused the gammon in Coca Cola and enjoyed the leftovers on a sandwich, you've roasted the beef, pan-fried the venison and seared the Seabass and you feel like you are all out of options.
This is the hamper for just such a day, our glorious Buffalo Slow Roasting pack.
Buffalo is leaner than beef so it benefits from being cooked long and slow which makes it the perfect joint to put on before a country walk or even an afternoon in front of Mary Poppins. This method is also wonderfully effort-lite in that once its in the pot you can pretty much forget about it until you're ready to eat. No basting, no turning, nothing.
Couldn't be simpler.
It also benefits enormously from straightforward, hearty accompaniments. Goose fat roasties, caramelised veg… I'm starving just thinking about it.
If you've never tried buffalo before, now is the moment. It is rich and delicious falling somewhere between beef and venison on the flavour scale although it isn't game-y at all. It has a unique taste all of its own and I think you're going to love it.
