Ox Cheek Recipe
Tuesday Mar 01 2016

Ox Cheek with Dumplings and Beetroot Puree

Ox cheek, a somewhat underused cut of meat, brought back into the the spotlight by chefs around the country, looking for something a little bit different to serve up to their customers, or the chefs that champion the wonderful 'nose to tail' style cooking, aiming to use every part of the beast and leave nothing to waste.  An astounding cut of beef the ox cheek is, cooked slowly it has bags of flavour, very tender and requires next to no messing around with.

Venison and Oyster Pudding served with mash and brocoli
Venison and Oyster Pudding Recipe
Thursday Oct 15 2015

Venison and Oyster Pudding
At the Loch Lomond Arms we have an amazing larder; our chefs are spoiled with the beautiful ingredients found right on our doorstep from the bountiful Camstraddan kitchen garden to our own Estate Venison, Lamb and Pheasant as well as the foraged ingredients from the village of Luss. Our chefs are always thinking of the best way to reduce waste and utilise as much of our wonderful ingredients as possible. For venison this means the loins for wellingtons, haunches are braised or minced for burgers and the rib meat works perfectly for these little puddings.
