In May 2023, 250 people attended the two-day Warrendale Wagyu Conference in Telford, Shropshire, UK, held in partnership with the British Wagyu Association & Wyndford Wagyu.
Welcoming retailers, processors and a strong line-up of UK and international speakers as well as both current and prospective farmer partners, the event was staged by the East-Yorkshire family farming business, Warrendale Wagyu, who run a fully integrated Wagyu beef supply chain.
The farm-to-fork story starts with a visit to Dovecote Park, the processor responsible for producing Warrendale Wagyu beef for the retailer Aldi UK.
The second day sees delegates greeted with a superb lunch menu including a British Wagyu Steak Sandwich – roasted sirloin, deli roll, caramelized onion chutney, parmesan mayo and dressed rocket. Other dishes on offer are the ‘go-to’ British Wagyu Burger or slow-cooked British Wagyu Short Ribs.
That evening at the drinks reception, guests are treated to canapes including a Shui Mai Wagyu Beef Dumpling with Black Garlic presented by the Michelin-starred Hakkasan restaurant.
Dinner is the showpiece event with British Wagyu tomahawks carved at the table accompanied by seasonal vegetables, roast potatoes, Wagyu dripping and red wine jus.
A bottle of special commemorative Warrendale Wagyu gin to round off the meal or take home!
