The Ethical Butcher launches recipe box range in collaboration with Pestle

The Ethical Butcher is excited to announce the introduction of new products to its e-commerce site. Made in collaboration with Pestle, the fresh curry paste company born during lockdown, when ‘normal’ life came to a grinding halt by chef, Neha Hampton. Hampton has developed her pastes to be as easy as possible to cook at home delivering a final result that is more fine dining than your local takeaway.

With a desire to build a deeper connection between people, communities and food, Pestle and The Ethical Butcher’s aim is to take customers on a culinary journey of exploration, deep diving into the history of some of Britain’s favourite Indian dishes. Launching with British favourites including Chicken Tikka, Lamb Korma and a Beef or Pork Vindaloo recipe kits, each kit includes ethically sourced, regenerative British meats from The Ethical Butcher, and a fresh paste created by Pestle. 

Made using British grown garlic, onions and chilled combined with carefully curated spices and blended with Mellow Yellow carbon neutral rapeseed oil each paste is freshly chopped, roasted, ground and blended by hand in Sussex in small batches to recreate dishes from the Indian Subcontinent. Through this collaboration The Ethical Butcher and Pestle are excited to bring authentic flavours to the dinner table with recipes that are simple and easy to follow, resulting in an unforgettable dining experience. 

The Ethical Butcher is proud to be supporting Pestle and is the first online retailer to sell its products. 

Glen Burrows, co-founder of The Ethical Butcher, comments: “With our focus on British agriculture and provenance, celebrating British culture is part of our mission. It is difficult to consider the culinary history of Britain without thinking about its ties to India. When we met Neha, she shared our passion for the history of Britain’s cuisine, we felt compelled to support Pestle. The curry pastes that Neha has created are nothing short of extraordinary. Not only do they perfectly complement our ethical and sustainable meats, but as a business we are delighted to be able to support such an inspiring entrepreneur and a business born out of the pandemic.”

The Ethical Butcher X Pestle boxes will be available to purchase from at just £6.50 for the pastes alone and kits including paired meats from £11 to feed three to four people.
