A TRUE BRITISH LEGEND! THE EAST OF ENGLAND FINDS ITS LEGENDARY BANGER
BROOKFIELD FARM TRIUMPHS AT BRITISH SAUSAGE WEEK 2011
Local butcher Brookfield Farm, Stevenage, is celebrating today as its ‘Hertbeat Banger’ was crowned most legendary banger in the East of England by rock legend and British Sausage Week 2011 ambassador, Noddy Holder.
This year, the competition received hundreds of entries and Brookfield Farm won the East’s regional heat to receive their much deserved Golden Sausage Disc and a place in the British Sausage Week Hall of Fame.
Slade frontman, and true British legend, Noddy Holder, has led the search to find Britain’s Legendary Bangers. He’s been touring the country since 31st October to uncover that little bit of sparkle that makes for a really special sausage.
Commenting on Brookfield Farm’s winning sausage, Noddy said: “Brookfield Farm’s Hertbeat Banger was absolutely delicious. They very much deserve their prize and place in the British Sausage Week Hall of Fame.”
Steve O’Dwer from Brookfield Farm said: “We are delighted that our Hertbeat Banger has been named best banger in the East. The sausage is made using pork farmed in our fields, and is a real tribute to the local countryside. It was a great pleasure to meet Noddy who awarded us our very own Gold Disc!”
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 have launched their new and exclusive recipe booklet, Legendary British Bangers Greatest Hits Remixed, which includes updates on classic sausage recipes, available to download at http://www.britishsausageweek.com
When shopping for your sausages, don’t forget to look out for quality assurance such as that identified by the Red Tractor Pork logo on pack. This ensures that your sausages have been produced to exacting quality control and welfare standards. That way of course you will also be supporting the very farmers who uphold them.
