What's in Season April - now Live!

Meat for a Week - April

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 - or month’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 to 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 - or monthly - Meat requirements tailored precisely to your personal requirements and taste.

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

We have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular in April and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier

Lingering winds gradually give way to warm sunshine

April is such a transitional month when lingering winds gradually give way to warm sunshine and we start to ease hunched bodies into showing warm summery smiles. 

Appetites start to change

The days are now longer, and our appetites start to change, swaying to and fro - depending on the ever-changing weather - between the robust warming meals of Winter to the lighter dishes of Summer

Coming into season

With Rocket, Watercress, Spring Onions, Asparagus, Jersey New Potatoes, Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Radishes, Spinach and the first early Salad Leaves - all in, or coming into season - there is no shortage of new fresh ingredients to cater for all the different meals we now start to crave

But some of April’s ingredients are not around for long - so do make the most of them before they disappear

Quick-to-prepare - and quick-to-cook

With Meat for a Week we find that the quick-to-prepare - and quick-to-cook recipes dominate Monday to Thursdays - whilst the weekend is when the longer cooking big guns have their day

Some of our super organized customers make a big casserole or Stew for weekdays that can last a few days and can be quickly heated up and served when they get home

Our featured Seasonal meat - Organic and Free Range Chicken - has been covered in detail in our “What’s in Season” article sent earlier this week - and currently available during the whole of April on our Website

So whether you choose one of the recipes above - or are just inspired to explore further recipes we hope we have given you much food for thought for your April seasonal meals

The idea that some households are only in for certain days so they don’t need to order for every day of the week - they just order what they need instead of a full box cutting out expense and waste - seems to have really caught on

We do the rest - be it if you would prefer delivery direct to your door Nationwide - or at our Click and Collect Points in Highbury or Finsbury Park.  

Bon Appétit!
