Roar meat: Katy Perry feasts on racks of lamb from Manchester butcher
Published:  21 May, 2014

Manchester butcher’s W H Frost found themselves preparing racks of lamb for Katy Perry yesterday (20 May) before her show at the Phones 4U Arena.

Throughout her stay in Manchester the butchers supplied Perry and her entourage with pork fillets, rib eye steaks, chicken supremes and yesterday, 30 racks of lamb.

Despite being a vegetarian, pop-star Prince also enlisted the butcher’s help during his brief period in the city last Friday and Saturday. The Purple Rain singer also ordered rib-eye steaks, fillet barrels and chicken for his band members.

Lee Horseley Frost, operations director for W H Frost, who yesterday tweeted a picture of the racks on route to Perry said: “Whenever there are big stars at the Arena or the Apollo in Manchester we supply them with their meat. We work closely with two catering companies and whenever there is a big star in town they get in touch.”

The butcher’s, which is based in Chorlton, Manchester, have been family-run since 1890 and won the Manchester Food and Drink Award in 2011 for best food and drink outlet. The butcher’s also came second in the top five butchers on visitmanchester.com.
