A TRUE BRITISH LEGEND! EAST MIDLANDS FINDS ITS LEGENDARY BANGER
LAKINGS OF LOUTH BUTCHERS TRIUMPHS AT BRITISH SAUSAGE WEEK 2011
Local butcher Laking of Louth was today announced as the East Midlands winner with their Lincolnshire Sausage by rock legend and British Sausage Week 2011 ambassador, Noddy Holder.
This year, the competition received hundreds of entries and Lakings of Louth won the East Midlands 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 Laking of Louth Butchers’ winning sausage, Noddy said: “The standard of entries was incredibly high in the East Midlands, with many sausages worthy of the title of legendary sausage. Laking of Louths Lincolnshire sausage was among the best I have tasted. They truly deserve a spot in the Sausage Hall of Fame.”
J.R Laking of Laking of Louth Butchers’ said: “We are very proud to have won. This sausage recipe is an original made by my grandfather in 1938 that has been passed through the generations. It was great to meet Noddy and this feels like such an achievement.”
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.
