The Great Yorkshire Pork Pie, Sausage & Products Competition returns to Bradford this year, with the vast majority of classes remaining open to all-comers from across the UK.
This was an innovation last year when the contest formed part of the inaugural Craft Bakers and Butchers Extravaganza, staged at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate.
The 28th annual Great Yorkshire Competition, organised by The Confederation of Yorkshire Butchers Councils' (CYBC), returns to the Cedar Court Hotel, Bradford, on Sunday, October 30th.
It will again feature flagship pork pie and sausage classes – supreme and reserve supreme champions will be crowned here - along with black pudding and beef burger classes, which are open to all UK butchers, farm shops and bakers who make products on their own premises.
There will again be a "New Kid on the Block" class, open to White Rose entrants only and designed to encourage new blood to enter. Entry forms are enclosed with this issue of Craft Butcher and are also available to download below:
Sheffield pork butcher Konrad Kempka, now into his second term as CYBC president, will host the President’s Dinner Dance, on Saturday, October 29th.
Preparations for the 2016 renewal are progressing, with Skipton-based Moule Media again handling the event administration and PR. Further details will be released nearer the competition date, though potential sponsors and entrants should contact Robin Moule on 01756 794027, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
CYBC secretary and competition stalwart Mike Ward is on 07712 631742.
