DENSTONE HALL TRIUMPHS AT BRITISH SAUSAGE WEEK AWARDS
Local butchers Denstone Hall Farm Shop was today announced as the West Midlands regional winner with their Staffordshire Sizzler by the nation’s strictest judge, Craig Revel Horwood.
This year, the competition received hundreds of entries and Denstone Hall Farm Shop won the West Midlands regional heat to receive their much deserved Banger Award and £150 to donate to their charity of choice.
Britain’s toughest judge, Craig Revel Horwood, has led the search to find Britain’s Star Sausages. He’s been touring the country since the 1st November to uncover that little bit of sparkle that makes for a really special sausage.
Commenting on the Denstone Hall Farm Shop winning sausage, Craig said: “I’m known for being a tough judge, but I can genuinely say the standard of entries was so high picking a winner was hard work, however the Staffordshire Sizzler was just fab-u-lous! A worthy winner of the West Midlands Star Sausage”.
Denstone Hall Farm Shop said: “We are so pleased to win. You always hope to win when you enter a competition, but for our entry to be crowned The West Midlands’s Star Sausage is just fantastic. It was great to meet Craig and get our very own Banger Award!”
Organised by The British Sausage Appreciation Society, British Sausage Week celebrates the taste, quality and diversity of the sausage, of which there are some 400 individually named varieties in Britain alone.
To celebrate British Sausage Week, independent butchers and supermarkets alike will be running events and special offers so look out for special sausage themed menus in local pubs and restaurants. For those looking to experiment with sausages at home, the British Sausage Appreciation Society will be launching their new and exclusive recipe booklet for 2010 which you can download at www.britishsausageweek.com
