Christmas with Ian at Clarkes
Here we go again, another festive season is upon us (where has the year gone?) although many thoughts are on stocking fillers, mine is more on tummy fillers! I therefore urge you to visit Clarke's of Queniborough smorgasbord of delicious delights to tempt your pallate.
For a popular family winter warmer try one of Clarke's hand made belly busting family pies, these will happily feed a family of six. Packed to the brim with chunks of top quality locally sourced meat, with a tasty gravy, all surrounded by a delicious shortcrust pastry. The mouth watering choices available are Steak & Ale, Steak & Mushroom, Steak & Kidney. The Chicken pies are available with Mushrooms or Ham & Leek.
Clarke’s home made honey roast ham is utterly delicious, unlike the thin watery scraps you find in the supermarket, these slices stay moist and tasty. Ian sources the meat himself from Packington Farm, therefore guaranteeing you have the best delivered to your plate.
Entertaining guests this party season? Then treat them all to Clarke's sumptuous beef wellington. A prime cut of beef fillet topped with paté & mushrooms and enveloped in a delicate puff pastry, ideal for a family get together. This truly adds that WOW factor to create a glamorous dinner party.
Make Clarke's succulent free range stuffed Turkey crowns the centre piece of your Christmas dinner. The stuffing is hand made with pan fried onions and bacon mixed with fresh herbs, pork sausagemeat and breadcrumbs. These turkey crowns are very economical and with no bones there is no waste, plus they couldn't be easier to carve. Whole Turkeys can be ordered from Ian in time for Christmas and they are supplied from Kirks Farm in Barkby. If you feel more adventurous this year why not try something a little different and purchase a Goose from Croxton Kerrial, or Cockerels from Packington-Free Range. Maybe another option could be tender cuts of Beef from Scotland or a free range leg or loin of Pork from Packington.
We all know the festive table is never complete without a Pork Pie, therefore there is only one place to go: Clarke's of Queniborough- whose award winning pork pies are simply sublime, trust me on this one. These delectable hand made pies include a new range, that are topped with Red Leicester or Blue Stilton and caramelised onion chutney they are proving extremely popular.
You didn't think I could leave out mentioning the award winning bacon and sausages did you? Well Clarke's have combined both these taste sensations into hand-made pigs in blankets – awesome as a perfect accompaniment to any meal!
Finally, Ian and his team would like to wish all their customers 'A Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year' and look forward to welcoming new customers in 2016. Don't delay, order today to ensure top notch fayre.
