Search for best banger heads to Jimmy’s Farm
10:30pm Friday 26th July 2013 in News
IT’S TIME to pig out this weekend at Jimmy’s Farm Sausage and Beer Festival.
The finest East Anglian produce, including award-winning beer from Southwold’s Adnams brewery and Suffolk’s Aspall cider, will be available and there will be an appearance from sausage king, Stephen Plume, who is touring the UK in search of the perfect banger.
Essex chef Billy Grinsted, founder of catering company Black Jacket Chef, in Colchester, will offer a cookery demonstration, while Norfolk chef John Gay will lead a masterclass along with Michel Roux-trained chef-turned-forager Carl Shillingford, from Seasonal Suffolk.
Jimmy Doherty’s own range of rare-breed sausages will be on offer and he will also be judging the best banger competition and take part in the fastest sausage-eating contest.
Jimmy said: “Summer wouldn’t be summer without our Sausage and Beer Festival which celebrates two of this country’s finest inventions – the banger and a pint.”
With plenty to keep the children occupied, including Peppa Pig and a bouncy castle, there will also be live music, face painting and produce and craft stalls.
The festival runs from Saturday, July 27, to Sunday July 28, from 11am until 6pm. Entry is £7.50 for adults and £5 for children at the farm in Wherstead, just outside Ipswich.
