A TRUE BRITISH LEGEND! NORTH WEST FINDS ITS LEGENDARY BANGER
H CLEWLOW BUTCHERS TRIUMPHS AT BRITISH SAUSAGE WEEK 2011
Local butcher H Clewlow was today announced as the North West winner with their Blackstick Blue Cheese, Apple and Pork sausage by rock legend and British Sausage Week 2011 ambassador, Noddy Holder.
This year, the competition received hundreds of entries and H Clewlow won the North West 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 H Clewlow Butchers’ winning sausage, Noddy said: “The standard of entries was incredibly high in the North West, with many sausages worthy of the title of legendary sausage. However H Clewlows’ Blackstick Blue Cheese, Apple and Pork Sausage stood out as a delicious sausage. They truly deserve a spot in the Sausage Hall of Fame.”
Charles Clewlow of H Clewlow Butchers’ said: “We are so happy to have won the North West category. It was amazing to meet Noddy today and have him crown us with our very own Gold Disc. It will take pride of place at H Clewlow.”
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.
