Our Calf's Tongue is similar to Ox Tongue, yet more delicate in both flavour and texture. It's currently very fashionable on the menus of top restaurants where it is used in small quantities to create innovative, contemporary dishes. The traditional way to enjoy tongue is to simmer gently for several hours, and serve hot with caper sauce and mash. It's also very tasty served warm or cold in salads and sandwiches.

Before cooking, rinse the calf's tongue and soak it in salted water for an hour, then drain. Put the tongue in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently with the lid on, for about 30 mins. Drain the water and let the tongue cool, then peel off the skin. Leave to rest for 1 hour, the tongue should be tender. Season with salt and pepper. Slice the tongue with a sharp knife. Accompany with creamy mashed potatoes.
