  21. feel very proud to be serving such an extravagance in my restaurant john farrar head chef at 23 Seared Fillet of Kobe Beef Oriental fusion, beef shin dim sum and spiced beef tea £38.00 As part or our aim to source the freshest and best possible ingredients at 23, we now include on our menu what is considered to be some of the best beef in the world. Kobe beef is a special grade of beef from (Wagyu) cattle raised in Kobe, Japan. These cattle are massaged with sake and are fed a daily diet that includes large amounts of beer. This produces meat that is extraordinarily tender, finely marbled, and full-flavoured. It is also extremely per pound. Today they are raised on only 262 small farms, most of which pasture fewer than five cows, and the largest of which run only 10 to 15 animals.
  22. basically put forward a dish of mine that we have on at the restaurant the show on jimmy butlers pork (pork farmer of the year ) a dish which shows different techniques of cooking and different cuts of pork just to show the versitility of pork and how under rated it sems to be , talked about my passion through the dish and then got called up last week to say ide be cooking in one of the 4 heats to get to the final on the 25th november
  23. will be held on the 23rd of november at the birmingham NEC so fingers crossed should be fun
  24. Seared Fillet of Kobe Beef £38.00 Oriental fusion, beef shin dim sum and spiced beef tea Seen as the most exclusive, best beef herd in the world and we at 23 have managed with much time and effort to get hold of some for you. “These animals are loved and nurtured. They are even fed the odd bottle of beer and massaged to keep stress levels down. As a result the end product - the beef - is absolutely amazing and you will enjoy every mouthful so much you will be craving another” says chef.
