Meat for a week February

Godfreys Meat for a Week - February

Our specially designed for busy households - Meat for a Week Service - where you can cook some cuts straight away, keep some in the fridge - or pop some into the freezer for the end of the week.

No need to buy for every single day
No need to buy for every single day - just buy for the days you need - be it for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or for that Special occasion.

Not every customer has time to visit our shop in their busy lives - and some would like the convenience of all the week’s meat requirements taken care of in one go.

Avoid the disappointment of the supermarket visit.
So now you can Click and Collect or have Godfreys Premium Quality Meats and Poultry delivered in one box - Nation wide direct to your door - with something new to enjoy every day - without having to resort to the disappointment of the supermarket visit.

It wasn’t really our idea.
It’s what many of our customers already do - and they have grown to rely upon it so much we thought we should share the idea with all of our customers.

Rather than offer pre-chosen quantities and selection we have tried to emulate what many of our customers already do to help them in their busy lives.

We soon realised that many households may have two people in one day, and maybe six the next, so fixed quantities was not such a good idea.

We also realised that different people sometimes required different meat preferences.

So the best choice was to create on our Website a tab for each day of the week showing our customers top preferences for that day so make your choice easier - and quicker!

That way you can work through the days with easy choices and you can also decide what quantities will suit that day.

Your entire Weekly Meat shopping in minutes
Just start on a day and make a choice - add it to your cart - and within a few minutes you will have completed your entire weekly Meat requirements tailored precisely to your personal requirements and taste.

The daily selections naturally reflect the changing seasonal changes each month.

We enter February
We have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular in February and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier.
Winter bites with its teeth
As we enter February we do well to remember that Winter either bites with its teeth or lashes with its tail - so this is the time for comfort, for good food, and cosy reassuring warmth.

In our need to wage war against the cold we turn to the food that bolsters our energy levels and comforts us during the long dark hours.

All in season
With Horseradish, Jerusalem Artichokes, Kale, Parsnips, Cauliflower, Leeks and Purple Sprouting Broccoli - all in season - there is no shortage of fresh ingredients to add their contribution to the rich robust meals we oh so look forward to at this time of year.

Daylight hours seem very short and we seem to have acquired an appetite at weekends for more low and slow cooking.

Game now features regularly on our menus with such favourites as Pheasant, Red Leg Partridge, Venison and hard to find Wild Rabbit - as do filling Thrifty Cuts such as Ox Cheeks, Short Ribs of Beef, Middle Neck of Lamb, Breast of Lamb and Pigs Cheeks.

Time to eat Seasonal
Seasonal food is the time of year when food is at its optimum, either in terms of flavour or harvest. In today's global food market most foods are available all year round but when local seasonal food is available it tends to be fresher and cheaper because there has been less transportation and storage time from farm to fork.

Foods are usually harvested when they are at their peak and typically have the most flavour and nutrients, so eating seasonal food tends to be tastier, healthier and better for the environment.

And so here is what is in season - and most popular - in February to help you eat seasonally:

Leaves and Stems : Spring Green Cabbage, Savoy Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts, Kale, Chicory, Celery, Kohlrabi, Pak Choi, Radicchio

Flowers, Fruits and Seeds : Butternut Squash, Spaghetti Squash, Cauliflower, Purple Sprouting Broccoli
