Having battled through yet another piece of shoe leather type, French beef, can anybody recommend a supplier of correctly hung and correctly cut, British beef. Either a butcher or straight from the farm, or a UK supplier who supplies direct. Somewhere near Civray hopefully. I have tried all the French cuts and all the various outlets and it seems almost impossible to get a piece of 'melt in your mouth' steak. 9 times out of 10, its as tough as old boots, or full of grizle. And before someone says I'm anti French, I eat every other kind of meat here and love it. Its just beef that is the problem.

We have for some years been to a Christmas Gourmand Weekend in  Angouleme and have really enjoyed it. This year I have not any publicity for this event. Can anyone help with dates please or have we missed it.

I have a large capon/ broiler in my freezer. Has anyone tried slow roasting one? I was thinking of using a roasting rack in a roasting tin and putting water in the base of it. Any info would be gratefully received.

Hi all, just noticed on a recent superu receipt for general shopping (not fuel) that the points on the carte fidelite have "disappeared" and seemingly replaced by a value in Euros, can anyone shed any light on this. I will ask when next in, but that may be a while yet, and forearmed....! cheers, Jon

Following a recent posting re  non-availability of frozen legs of lamb - in Lidl in Barbezieux they had 4 or 5 in their freezer this afternoon.  Good price too.
