 January 2015
Dear Richard,  

Welcome to 2015.

Here at Devon Rose we hit the new year with a enormous sense of optimism. After a tremendous Christmas and 2014 we have some of the best names in the industry lining up to talk meat in 2015.

You can now enjoy Devon Rose sausages, bacon and ham in in so many locations nationwide I can't begin to tell you how proud I am. 

We are still looking to work with those smaller food groups that have an active interest in real local, honest, clean meat. If you know of anyone in particular please send me on an email. Micro groups, clubs and friends who might fall under the radar of the big boys are of genuine interest to us.

 

Finally, I have to thank you, our followers for your consistent support. The family really does feel connected to each and everyone of you.

Happy eating with our love

Basil, Mary & Richard & The Devon Rose family.

2015 Make it Paleo
Revert to type 
 A good deal of our clients are "clean diet" consumers. Equally a number of clients use us because of our welfare standards. Almost all of our clients stay with us becuase of the taste and eating quality.
  
For those that have been following the blogs you may have noticed various new terms creeping in. For example Paleo or Primal, particularly in our tweets. But what is Paleo?

 

I like to refer to Robb Wolf who is a former research biochemist. In his words "Paleo is the healthiest way you can eat because it is the only nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay lean, strong and energetic! Research in biology, biochemistry, ophthalmology, dermatology and many other disciplines indicate it is our modern diet, full of refined foods, trans fats and sugar, that is at the root of degenerative diseases such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, depression and infertility".

 

In essence the Paleo way of eating advocates consuming lean proteins, loads of vegetables, healthy fats from nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil, fish oil and grass-fed meat and fruits.
  
It excludes dairy, grains, processed foods and sugars, starches and alcohol.
  
Why does it work? The general premise is that our bodies have not changed since paleolithic times and we have not evolved to digest the foods modern farming has made available.  Far from being faddy it concludes that it is the more recent reliance on processed sugars and grains which are the novel foods and eating a diet which is closer to that which we are naturally evolved to eat is more beneficial to our wellbeing.
  
During 2014 I will include in our newsletters the latest thinking on what this could mean to you and your family.
BURNS NIGHT
A Burns Supper
Despite current tradition Burns suppers can be held at any time in the year although recently the meal tends to be held around the poets birthday. In fact the original suppers were actually held to commemorate Burns death in July.
  
Haggis is the traditional dish often eaten on Burns night. There is a lot of confusion as to what a haggis is actually made of. Haggis is a savoury pudding containing sheep's pluck (heart, liver and lungs); minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock. The actual recipe varies from butcher to butcher, however what is true is the haggis pre dates Burns by a long period so much so that the first known mention of this venerated dish comes not from Scotland but from Lancashire in 1430.  But before the English lay claim to the origins it was actually the Romans who were noted for using offal and oats cooked in natural skins.
  
In any event, it is accepted that the Scottish produce the finest haggis and as the longest supporters and producers of the product can rightly claim it as their own.
