Are you game?

For over half a decade, Good Game have produced a vast range of charcuterie using traditional methods, from nduja sausage to pastrami. They believe the secret to fantastic charcuterie is starting with exceptional pigs that have grown slowly with plenty of space to roam. With slow growth, there’s more fat, which produces a more delicious product. Choose between three charcuterie boxes: a beer snack box, spicy chorizo box, or the charcuterie selection box with prices starting from £13 per month.

Keep the fat!

With its full-bodied flavour and silky texture, Parma Ham is a world-class specialty food. Favoured by world-class chefs, this ham enhances appetizers, pasta dishes, salads, sandwiches and entrées. There is no need to remove the band of fat around each slice, which helps give the ham its balance of flavour and texture. Pre-sliced 14-month aged Prosciutto di Parma from Sainsburys for £2.50 per packet (80g containing 6 slices) and 24-month aged Parma Ham at £5 for 80g from Sainsburys.
