With passion, enthusiasm and innovative business practices, Stewart's Butcher-Deli makes an art of an ancient craft.
Voted best butcher in the UK in 2010, and holding the Northern Ireland title several times over, Stewart' Butchers an Deli in Fermanagh is famed locally for its sausages - Irish herb and pork and leek and mustard. Founded by Gabriel Stewart in 1979, Gabriel hung up his boots on Christmas Eve 2011, leaving the business in the capable hands of son Shane. In a concerted effort to reduce carbon footprint, everything about the business is local, from the selection of seasonal game, to the herbs and vegetables it uses in their recipes for sale at the deli counter. The latter are grown in their own organic kitchen garden, at the rear of the shop. For those who prefer to sweat over the stove, recipe cards are available to customers free of charge.
With different venison seasons for hinds and for stags, venison continues to be available in the shop through January and February. This recipe has been a popular choice on Stewart's Heat and Eat range.
