Wakefield farm shop celebrates World Cup

Blacker Hall Farm Shop is to celebrate the football World Cup with a South American-style barbecue chicken product.

The shop, based in Calder Grover, Wakefield, will launch its Churrasco Chicken today (13 June 2014), just in time for England’s first match.

The shop wanted to celebrate South American cuisine with its Churrasco, which refers to beef or grilled meat, including chicken, specifically cut thinly for cooking quickly over BBQ coals

Blacker Hall Farm Shop director Cheryl Garthwaite explained: “Our own Churrasco Chicken is similarly cut thinly and can be cooked quickly in around five minutes. Our goal has been to adopt some of the key flavours typical of South America, with a hint of warm spices, garlic and roasted onion.
“The marinade we use keeps the meat really juicy and it’s great for grilling and pan-frying, but especially over charcoal to give the most authentic taste. A twist of lemon and lime really sets this off and it can served in a sandwich, with salad or simply some crusty bread.”

Butchery manager Ian Richardson said: “We wanted to mark the biggest football tournament on the planet in a way that combines our award-winning local produce – all the chicken is locally sourced – with something that encompasses the Brazilian approach to food.
“We think the product is really versatile too. Given the unpredictable British weather, it’s also perfect to grill or pan-fry if we get hit with a typical Yorkshire downpour!”
