South West Finds Its Legendary Banger
4th November 2011
COMPLETE MEATS TRIUMPHS AT BRITISH SAUSAGE WEEK 2011
Local butcher Complete Meats of Axminster, Devon was today announced as the South West winner with their Ye Olde Pork Sausage by rock legend and British Sausage Week 2011 ambassador, Noddy Holder.
This year, the competition received hundreds of entries and Complete Meats won the South 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 Complete Meats winning sausage, Noddy said: “Complete Meats’ sausage was a real banger! The standard of entries was very high but the Ye Olde Sausage really stood out. It was delicious.”
Shaun Vining of Complete Meats said: “”It’s a handmade recipe that I have worked hard to perfect. I am thrilled to have won today, all the hard work has paid off.”
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.
