Just got in trouble with the missus for blowing a fortune on a "wee bit ham" for ou xmas dinner starter. Didnae really mean to spend as much as I did, but it is lovely!

 

Anyone else fork out a wee bit more for a bit of quality this time of year? :smiliz57:

Quality food is essential for me mate. I'm totally into the animal welfare thing and firmly believe that to eat an unhappy animal is not good for the soul.

 

Do most of my shopping at Waitrose. The difference in the meat is easy to taste. The chicken is chicken and not a fast growing genetic freak thats full of globule meat and fat. Their fruit tastes juicey and ripe and the choice of proper cheese is to die for.

I'd go to Mellis for cheese and the butchers at Bruntsfield for meat. Waitrose may be better quality than some but it's still a supermarket. If your properly into animal welfare you'd boycott all of them completely.

A bloke in the pub offered me eight legs of venison for £120.

Waitrose have their own farms and are big on animal wellfare. They have a great cheese selection too that Mellis would be proud off.

You should see some of the pig farms in Poland and chicken farms on the continent are a disgrace. The thought of eating some of these animals had me off meat for a while.

Class 1 fruit is purely graded on appearance mate. Nothing to do with taste. Have you any idea how much fruit is grown with additives to speed up growth and chemicals added to aid appearance.

its more to do with size, which you could call appearance i guess.

 

you do know that waitrose don't have exlusivity on most of their suppliers and some of those suppliers send stores such as aldi exactly the same fruit. its not the fruit you pay more for, its the service you get and the nice ambience of the store.

 

for what its worth, i love shopping in waitrose

We went for a rib roast from Forsyths in Peebles for Xmas day. Yes it costs a bit extra but it's a thank you to all the family for help with the kids etc. A wee side note on the ham, last year I boiled it in irn bru and then baked it. It was the biz.

Good for you! I hope you have a great christmas birthday and new year mate :santa1: If you can't splash out a bit more for special times with people you love around you then it's kinda crap really.

Their fruit is not that much more expensive. In fact if I think about the times I've thrown out stuff because its rubbish....its actually cheaper:santa1:
