The Norfolk Food and Drink Festival, held at The Forum in Norwich, and on surrounding streets was as delicious as usual. The weather was perfect – hot and sunny – and the streets were packed with people keen to enjoy some of the very best Norfolk suppliers and chefs, as well as the highly anticipated Battle of the Bangers.
Swannington Farm to Fork’s delicious herby, Cumberland-style gluten-free offering. Of the seven sausages on offer, my dad actually picked this as his favourite, too, and I will definitely be making my way to Swannington in the near future to grab some bangers for my freezer!
The Sponsors Choice Award was won by Coxfords Butchers of Aylsham – who also supplied the delicious sausagemeat to Benedicts’s, as enjoyed by me the week before – and they were a popular winner. Icarus Hines was second, with Swannington Farm to Fork third.
For the Peoples’s Vote, there was just a handful of votes in it, with Icarus Hines taking the win. Papworth Butchers coming second. Coxfords Butchers third.
The Battle of the Bangers was very popular all seven butchers that took part were busy all day, cooking and sharing their samples.
Presenting the results of the Battle of the Bangers, organised by Jamie Archer of Archers Butchers.
