The Posh Kebab Company, a new venture in street food from Partridge Farm Meats, launches at the Exeter Festival of South West Food and Drink from 24 to 26 April 2015.
Rare and traditional breed meat specialists Hannah and Duncan Nobbs, who breed and butcher Aberdeen Angus cattle, Oxford Down sheep and Large Black and Saddleback pigs at Partridge Farm near Tiverton, are the first farmers in the Westcountry to diversify in this way, keeping food miles from field to plate to an absolute minimum.
“All of our livestock is born, bred and butchered on our Devonshire farm. The animals only leave the farm to go to the local abattoir a few miles away,” explains Hannah. “Now we’re going one step further by cooking posh kebabs for our customers at street food markets and private functions.”
When the couple first bought Partridge Farm in 2010, they were so impressed by the difference in taste of rare breed meats: “All of our lamb and beef is grass-fed and slow-grown, with beef hung for 35 days. So the flavour, texture and succulence are second-to-none.”
The Posh Kebab Company exclusively uses their own freshly-cooked Aberdeen Angus topside and silverside beef steaks and rare breed lamb, marinated then cooked on the kebab spit and basted with ale. High animal welfare is paramount and every steak used in the posh kebabs is traceable back to individual cows and sheep from Partridge Farm.
“We’re thrilled to be launching at Exeter Festival of South West Food and Drink this April,” comments Hannah. “It’s the ultimate place for serious foodies to immerse themselves in the best Westcountry produce and we’re proud to be involved once again this year.”After launching in Exeter, The Posh Kebab Companywill trade at TASTE, Tiverton’s street food market and Frome Farmers’ Market, and is now taking bookingsfor private parties and functions – the ideal trendy catering alternative, serving anything from 20 up to 500 people.
