The Perfect Picnic + Alfresco Dining

July is the month where the sun is shining (fingers crossed) and the summer holidays truly begin. This can only mean picnics and alfresco dining become more popular.

July is the month where the sun is shining (fingers crossed) and the summer holidays truly begin. This can only mean picnics and alfresco dining become more popular. Whether it is an evening at home in the garden or a picnic in the park, here at Neil Powell, we’ve got you covered!

This month we have created our version of a Boston Butt – the cut of meat typically used for pulled pork.  Boston butt is traditionally pork shoulder on the bone, but we’ve used pork shoulder with the bone removed, rolled and tied back into a joint. See the highlighted area in the diagram below (via www.smithfield.com/prep-school/pork-101/know-your-cuts/):

We used this recipe from James Martin:

This is just perfect for a lazy Sunday; leave it slowly cooking in the oven and then let the whole family dig in with fresh bread rolls and slaw.

If you’re heading outdoors for a day of activities, we also have a large range of picnic basket fillers. Each day the team in Abergavenny whip up a range of pastries, pies and savoury treats which are distributed to all of our stores. Along with cooked meats for sandwiches and salads, we have everything you need to keep the little ones full and of course, a feast for you.

Watch our for our competition over on Facebook launching tomorrow – this one is not to be missed!
