By the way, and you'll probably like this, Dave, we had pork chops for tea tonight, done Delia-style with mushrooms, thyme, lemon and cream, baked in the oven. Glorious. The key fact here is that I'd bought the chops from the Gloucester Services butcher. In fact, the carrier bag had "Tebay Services" on it. It seems bloody ridiculous that I should be singing the praises of a motorway services, but I don't buy my pork from anywhere else these days. Our local butcher used to sell us pork that he got from the farm of Mary Quicke MBE, her of Quicke's cheddar. Unfortunately, he retired and Mrs Quicke stopped doing her amazing whey-fed pigs, so decent pork is impossible to get in Bude these days. Thank God for Gloucester Services! I have pork belly from there in my freezer, as well as a beautiful hunk of boned and rolled shoulder with a mass of crackling. All Gloucester Old Spot, free-range. Life is good.
