The Allen's established their family butchers in Coventry over 60 years ago; and their web-site has been operating since 1998. As well as supplying excellent meat & poultry - butchered in a French-style if necessary, they supply traiteur dishes that only need a little finishing.
These include 'chicken Basquaise' (stuffed with roasted peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, chorizo sausage & coriander); lamb in 'Greek-style', or with spinach & herbs or apple & apricot. They can also procure cockerels - these weigh anything up to 5 kilos!
Their expanding deli section offers everything from De Gustibus bread to charcuterie, biscotti and a selection of olive oil.
If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton French Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards. Small classes.
