The clue is in the title, it is great and we had a great time. The show was attended by Rosie Winterton MP who is Minister for Yorkshire. Rosie remembered meeting us last year at another event and so she was talked into buying some smoked bacon this time. We are glad she paid as we did not want to become embroiled in an expenses row. Its a delicious thought that the aroma of Blue Pig bacon is wafting through the corridors of power.
We were also flattered when celebrity chef Brian Turner cooked our gammon steak and black pudding in his demonstration. Even better when he said he had enjoyed eating it too. It was a joy to watch him work as he is a consumate professional. The audience lapped him up.
Apart from the name dropping its good to see friends that you have not seen for a while. We also found it useful to pick other producers brains. Then if you need a leg stretch there is lots to see. So much in fact you really need the whole three days to see it all. We also spent a lot of time talking to the public about what we do and promoting our new online shop. So if you have found this site after talking to us at the show welcome, well done and we hope you like what you see.
