Have your say

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

So if you’re looking to woo a loved one this Valentine’s Day – on Friday, in case you’ve forgotten – you might want to pay a quick visit to Weston.

For love is definitely in the air at Wimberley Hall Farm Shop, where staff have devised a limited edition recipe comprising of a trio of heart-shaped burgers ideal for lovers to share.

The mouth-watering Trinity Tower of Love dish includes two portions of the beef patties, which graduate in size, all stacked together with layers of delicious mozzarella cheese, bacon and a Mediterranean marinade nestling in between.

Tessa Bustance, of the shop, says it was apprentice butcher Anthony Buck who came up with the idea.

“The beef burgers are homemade and shaped using three different sized heart cutters,” she said.

“The bottom two have the mozzarella between them and then the middle and the top has the bacon.

“It was Anthony’s idea and just something fun and quirky for Valentine’s Day.”

Priced by weight, a pair of the burger stacks cost around £3.20, meaning all customers have to do is pop them in the oven.

Other special edition delicacies devised by Anthony and the Wimberley Hall team include black beef truffles mixed with Stilton and Thai beef truffles.

The family-owned venture opened last autumn and stocks a wide variety of fresh fruit and veg as well as a huge choice of locally produced meats including beef, lamb and pork.

There’s also cooked meats, cheeses and deli products, many of which are homemade, plus plants, birdseed, straw, hay, locally brewed beers and gift cards.
