Chef's Choice: John Allan on Aberdeen Angus Beef

Aberdeenshire's pride... the Aberdeen Angus Beef as told by Alford Bistro's John Allan

There are over 800 different breeds of cattle worldwide, but standing tall amongst them is the Aberdeen Angus.

Here in Alford, where the breed originated, we’re very proud of our heritage. We boast the magnificent statue of Jeremy Eric, a prize-winning Angus Bull that commemorates the area’s links to the breed.

At the Alford Bistro we take great delight in offering our customers the end product; sizzling, succulent and absolutely delicious char-grilled Angus steaks. Iit’s hard to imagine anything finer than a char-grilled fillet of beef with haggis, chappit neeps and a red wine jus, all cultivated (save perhaps the wine) within a stone’s throw of the restaurant.
