Eating Exeter has some exciting and tasty news!
Food lovers are in for a real treat at The Magdalen Chapter in Exeter, which has teamed up with Devon’s leading sausage experts, Andrew James Butchery (was Turtons of Devon up to recently), to add a ‘Magdalen Boerwors’ to its bar menu.
The South African-inspired sausage has been made using a bespoke recipe created for the boutique hotel. It is the result of a new collaboration between head chef, Ben Bulger, and the local sausage specialists who supply top chefs around the country.
Packed with the highest quality beef and pork, guests can bite into the expertly spiced Boerwors – the name comes from the Afrikaans words boer(farmer) and wors (sausage) – and enjoy it with a bottle of locally-brewed Otter Ale from the Honiton brewery for just £10.
Head chef, Ben Bulger, says: “We are thrilled to be adding this new dish to our menu. The Magdalen Boerwors is big in flavour and Steve Turton at Andrew James Butchery has created this sausage especially for us, to our own specific design.
“We have worked with Steve since the day we re-opened in 2012, and it’s this quality service, which goes the extra mile, that makes us fiercely loyal to him. We know we are offering the best possible, locally-sourced meals to our guests”.
“I’m really excited to be cooking this dish and I hope and expect it will prove a real hit with everyone who orders it.”
Established in Exeter in 1962, Andrew James Butchery is a third generation family-run business based in Cullompton. Expertly creating sausages using authentic recipes, Andrew James Butchery supplies sausages with only the finest ingredients. All meat is sourced and can be traced back to Farm Assured UK farms.
Director and Master Butcher, Steve Turton, says: “We are delighted to be working with Ben once again and are proud to offer the people of Devon a dish that’s completely unique.”
“We only use quality meat, and this has been the family ethos since my mother and father started the business in the 60’s. The origin of our meat is of the utmost importance and that; combined with the talents of Ben and his team, means we can truly showcase a great Devonshire dish.”
Available from March onwards the Magdalen Boerwors meal and a bottle of Otter Ale can be enjoyed for just £10. Table reservations at The Magdalen Chapter can be booked by calling 01392 281000.
