Product description

Chorizo is a product that we have spent a lot of time researching and recipe testing, in the quest to offer something authentic and true. Our in-house chef, George Ryle, who has spent his career cooking fantastic SwaledaleĀ meat in various restaurants in London, and has been wanting to develop a chorizo recipe for many years. Inspired by frequent trips to Andalusia, from where his partner, Vanesa, hails, and the beautiful, rustic cooking of the region; this has been a personal journey for George, with the result being what we think is a seriously good chorizo.

Using our rare breed, outdoor reared pork*, and smoked paprika of both the picante and dulce varieties; this sausage has the rich, deep colour and flavour which is so distinctive of chorizo. The addition of fresh garlic and a little dried oregano help to round the profile on your palate. It tastes incredible.

šŸ’ƒ Fresh or uncooked chorizo is softer to the touch and when cooking releases a delicious, spicy, red oil!Ā 

Spain has an amazing, yet under-appreciated, or perhaps mis-understood culinary heritage. Whilst French and Italian food have more successfully captured our imagination in the UK, Spanish food, which is very much their equal, garners less attention. Chorizo is an ingredient that sits at the heart of Spainā€™s proud heritage, so, needless to say, this chorizo is best used in Spanish cuisine.

For something beautifully simple rustle upĀ chorizo cooked in cider; fry the chorizo in a skillet over a high heat, add a glass or two of very good artisanal dry cider (from Asturias, if possible), reduce the heat and simmer for 10-minutes or so. Serve with bread and enjoy a combination of flavours that is honest and unassuming.

Or try cookingĀ chorizo, chickpea, trotter and ear cocidoĀ - with the addition of beef tripe and perhaps a little morcilla, this is as close to callos a la andaluzaĀ as youā€™ll get, and itā€™s a lip-smacking, unctuous bowl of joy.

Alternatively, grill the chorizo, along with padrĆ³n peppers, and then stuff the whole lot into a sourdough bun or bocadillo. QuĆ© rico!!

*Shoulder and belly are our preferred cuts providing just the right fat content for a really succulent fresh chorizo. Our Tamworth and Middle White pigs are reared outside where they can root around, wallow and exhibit all of their instinctive behaviours. They're matured at their own pace which enables the fat to naturally marble the meat, and gives the pork a superior texture. To maximise the naturally occurring flavour, all Swaledale native breed pork is dry-aged on the bone for up to 3-weeks in our Himalayan salt chamber; this further enhances the rich, distinctive flavour.Ā George's Fresh Chorizo is Always Fresh Never FrozenĀ®, butchered to order, vacuum packed, and shipped in recyclable packaging to arrive safely insulated and ready to enjoy.
