What a great excuse for strolling around Faversham on (what turned out to be a) SUNday! – tasting, chattering and comparing notes with friends and family as well as with complete strangers – what food and drink is all about – especially these days when so few families dine together !
This year’s Sausage Trail was reduced to 4 entrants at rather late notice (and the tickets were reduced in price to reflect that !) … but nonetheless, we soldiered on with stiff upper lips … except when munching sausages, of course!
So local butchers to enter in 2016 were:
Baldy Butchers – winners of 2015 “People’s Choice”
MBFarms – winners of 2015 “Experts’ Choice”
So – drum roll, please … this year’s winner is … Macknade Butcher with their “Spicey Cumberland Sausage” and astonishingly in BOTH categories … a rare event even in Ludlow Food Festival (from whom we clearly took the idea of a Sausage Trail for Faversham Food Festival (!)
Thanks to all butchers and all tasters !
and a special thank you to the ‘hot dogs’ at Baldy Butchers for their FABULOUS costumes
