Pork belly with a rhubarb compote served with leek and
potato mash was a smash for Ladies In Pigs at the Newark
The show president, the off-duty Chief Constable, and
an MP were button-holed by LIPs Nottinghamshire chairman
Julia Blant who promoted British pork and lobbied for all
meat sold on the showground to be British.
The show, held earlier this month, was a great success
for LIPs as their stand won not only Best Agricultural
Stand at the Show, but took the Cup for the best Stand
at the Show overall.
Julia said: "We were really pleased to have won but
the star of the show was the pork belly with rhubarb compote
and leek and potato mash. Everyone loved that!
"The other recipes were also well received and I
really liked the idea of mixing the flavours of vegetable
served with meat and sauce - it worked well.
"It was also excellent timing to highlight our theme
of locally produced food, as a food miles, local food campaign
was launched at the show."
LIPs comprises pig farmers' wives who
tour the country with a mobile kitchen, sponsored by the
British Pig Executive (BPEX), promoting low fat British
pork as the healthy option and showing new and interesting
ways to cook it.
