Restaurants may be starting to reopen but for many, dining out is still not an option and, with the weather kicking it up a few notches, there’s never been a greater excuse to light up the BBQ at home or picnic in the park. With this in mind, HG Walter has come up with a number of fantastic, high quality delivery boxes (available within London and the M25) that will help you make the most of this time spent at home.
What is HG Walter?
HG Walter is an independent, family-run butcher based in Barons Court that is committed to changing the way people eat meat. Established in 1972 by Peter Heanen, it has become one of London’s most respected butchers, supplying some of its best chefs and restaurants, as well as its loyal customers, with the very best of British meat rating highly in provenance, welfare, and flavour.
HG Walter’s meat is predominantly sourced from small farms rearing free-range native breeds. These native breeds, such as Hereford and Aberdeen Angus cattle and Hampshire Duroc pigs, are known for yielding some of the best meat in the world; their natural diets and slow growth producing excellent marbling and fat content, allowing a superior depth of flavour. A devotion to supplying products of the highest quality means HG Walter sometimes looks further afield however, whether it’s acorn fed Ibérico pork reared on Redondo Iglesias’ family farm in Estremadura, or Danish veal from Peter’s Farm, who’s welfare standards are second to none.
What’s in the Boxes?
Like so many of its counterparts, HG Walter has had to adapt fast in the face of COVID-19. With 40 plus years of business acumen behind them, the HG family has created a business that now includes a home delivery service available to customers within London and the M25. Here are a few of our favourite boxes:
Basic BBQ Box for 4
This box says “for 4” but there is a HECK OF A LOT of incredible meat in this box! Having reviewed this bad-boy, we can safely say that this box could feed a group of at least six hungry meat-lovers with food to spare. The Stokes Sweet & Sticky BBQ Sauce is not overly sweet and is packed full of flavour. We added some dried chilli flakes to it and marinaded the pork chops in this overnight before chucking them on the barbie. The HG Walter House BBQ Rub works wonders with the thick chicken thighs and the succulent Bavette served medium-rare with salsa verde is heaven.
