March 2015

We recently ran a competition to find some of Shropshires’ finest dishes and we weren’t disappointed with the responses!  It turns out the folk of Shropshire are passionate about both their heritage and their food.

After many hours of having to endure tasting sessions we picked a winning dish and Shropshire Faggots were easily our favorite.

The winner, Andrew Constable, was invited into our kitchens to show us how they should be made.

Andrew is a local lad and picked the dish as it evoked memories of his childhood when Nanna Constable would cook them up for his brothers & sisters.

He said: “I have recreated and updated the recipe slightly and am sure Nanna would approve – being given the opportunity to actually cook the dish at the Buckatree was an amazing experience.”

Andrew, we salute you!
