Lovers of good food ordered no gross meat (11)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

gastronomes

'lovers of good food' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'ordered no gross meat' is the wordplay.
'ordered' indicates anagramming the letters.
'no'+'gross'+'meat'='nogrossmeat'
'nogrossmeat' is an anagram of 'GASTRONOMES'.

(Other definitions for gastronomes that I've seen before include "No gross meat (anag)" , "Gourmets" .)
