Celebrate the pig!
Head Chef Russell teams up with Dingley Dell on their Flying Visits tour...
|On Tuesday 11 February, I headed to Westminster Kingsway College for a night devoted to all things porky as part of the Dingley Dell's Flying Visits ‘Pig Tour’.
The college is where I first trained, so not only was it great to be back where my career began, but great also to be part of the event celebrating superbly flavoured, welfare friendly Suffolk pork.
The event is sponsored and organised by Dingley Dell and all pulled together by Miranda Godfrey - a wonderful lecturer at the college. As one of the team of chefs invited to take part, I was tasked with cooking the main course (the hardest to deliver!) to a room of over 100 hungry pork lovers.
Fortunately I had some very well trained students on hand to help me with the preparation and delivery, and we cooked a mouth-watering – even if I do say so myself – dish of 9 Spice Dingley Dell Pork Loin & Cheek, Golden Turnips, Granny Smith Apple & Pork Quavers.
The evening was a great success and everyone left with a belly full of Pork.
All funds raised from this evening of porky delights were donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
