This year’s UK Sausage Week launched in style with a celebration lunch at the newly refurbished Butchers’ Hall, London. The winners of the 2019 were revealed yesterday during a ‘sizzling’ occasion attended by winners, finalists and Award partners.
Chef Lesley Waters, known for regular TV appearances on programmes such as Ready Steady Cook (BBC), Great Food (UKTV) and This Morning (ITV), presented the winners with their awards, including the coveted UK Supreme Sausage Champion accolade.
The top Award went to Morgan’s Country Butchers for its Traditional Shropshire Pork Sausage. Commenting after the presentation, Lauren Morgan said: “We are absolutely thrilled to win this fantastic Award and become this year’s UK Supreme Sausage Champion. We also won the West Midlands Traditional sausage category so it is a double celebration.”
The winning sausage uses Darren Morgan’s 30 year old recipe. Lauren added: “Dad is really thrilled. It’s a great sausage and very popular with our customers.”
Darren Morgan stated he is: “Honoured and proud to have won in great company”
Around 500 different sausages were entered into the competition and were judged back in September at The Regional Food Academy, Harper Adams University, by Institute of Meat CEO Keith Fisher, Q Guild of Butchers manager Claire Holland and members of Ladies In Pigs (LIPS).
Companies and businesses still looking to get involved in the action may wish to download the official UK Sausage Week poster to display, or download the logo to print and use for product labels. There is also a selection of sizzling sausage recipes available for use.
