There will be demonstrations from TV chef Rachael Green, who will be preparing some delicious dishes, including the Great Lincolnshire Sausage. There will also be Sausage making demonstrations by Neil Curtis from Curtis’ of Lincoln. There will be entertainment from The Europa Clowns, Matto and Polo, street music, the Cosmic Sausages and the appearance of Mr Sausage throughout the day in and around the Castle Grounds.

There will also be children’s cookery demonstration area, as well as face painting in the Redhill’s Marquee.

Meanwhile, Lincoln Cathedral will be giving visitors the opportunity to taste and explore just how our food gets from field to fork. This will include exhibitors tracing the history of farming and they will be demonstrating different seeds.

Vintage tractors will also be on show, as well as state of the art farm machinery. Local businesses and their produce will also be participating in the event.

Visitors will have the opportunity to see what goes into Tom Woods’ Beer, who pride themselves on using all English ingredients in their beer. Woodlands Farm will also be revealing what is distinctive about organic farming. But it is not just the harvest of the land; the sea also will be represented with the help of Grimsby Smoked Fish.

With over 50 exhibitors, there will be something for everyone. The Castle and Castle Hill will be filled with stalls selling all types of produce.


Celebrity chef to cook up a storm for British sausage week

To be held from 4 to 10 November, the popular chef and co-host of Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, Simon Rimmer knows all too well the importance of using quality produce – particularly when it comes to serving sausages.

He commented: “I’m thrilled to be undertaking a journey of discovery to find Britain’s greatest sausages. We have some of the best produce in the world and it is important that we continue to support our producers. One way to do this is by highlighting quality sausages that carry an assurance mark like the Red Tractor. This not only means traceability but also ensures the sausages are from pigs farmed by responsible farmers.”

BPEX foodservice trade manager, Tony Goodger, said: “It’s a real privilege to have Simon at the forefront of this year’s campaign. I’m certain that his high profile will help put sausages firmly in the spotlight and encourage consumers to choose quality sausages when dining out.”

British Sausage Week is a great promotion for the whole industry and caterers from all sectors can benefit from including a range sausage dishes across the day’s menus. To help outlets maximise interest and exposure, BPEX has designed an array of promotional material including themed posters and menu displays, which will be sure to entice customers.
