‘Posh sausages’served at gourmet pop-up stall

Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS -

FOR one day only, a pop-up stall in Cardiff city cen­tre gave away gourmet hot dogs pro­duced on the Llŷn Penin­sula.

The “Posh Sausage Pop-Up” also pro­vided lux­ury ta­ble ser­vice from a team of black-tie wait­ers.

Run by the Porc. Wales cam­paign, es­tab­lished by meat levy body Hybu Cig Cymru (HCC), the idea was to show­case the best of Welsh pork prod­ucts.

The hot dogs were served a first-come­first-get ba­sis out­side the Capi­tol Cen­tre, Cardiff, from 12pm on Mon­day.

Kirstie Jones, HCC’s mar­ket de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer, said: “We want to prove that, when it comes to pork from Wales, you don’t need a five-star kitchen to pro­duce a gourmet food ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Choos­ing the best sausage for the job fell to former Wales rugby star Scott Quin­nell and fel­low HCC judges at this year’s Royal Welsh Show.

Pro­duc­ers were in­vited to en­ter prod­ucts and the win­ning ver­dict went to a spe­cial­ity pork and cheese sausage from Gwyned­dbased Oinc Oink.

Huw and Ela Roberts of Oinc Oink, Llith­faen, cou­pled their own­reared pork meat with Vin­tage Welsh Ched­dar from nearby South Caernar­fon Cream­eries.

“It’s Welsh pro­duce at its best!” said Ela.
