The very lovely people at Kernow Sausage Company in Cornwall have very kindly given Foodies South West some goodies to give away to mark Farmhouse Breakfast Week, which started yesterday.
If ever there was weather that makes you hanker after a good filling breakfast it is this snow and ice sweeping the country.
The Westcountry may have missed out on the worst of it this time but you should still finally listen to your mother’s (or father’s) advice and leave the house only after something more filling than depressing muesli or, urgh, a Kellogg’s Pop Tart.
Farmhouse Breakfast Week runs annually and aims to highlight the health benefits of eating breakfast as well as showing consumers the wealth of local produce available across the country.
Born from farmhouse kitchen beginnings, Tregony-based Kernow Sausage Company, which takes its name from the Cornish word for Cornwall, supplies some of the county’s finest chefs, hotels and restaurants with their sausages, bacon and hog’s pudding, made from pigs hand-reared on their Cornish farm.
Breakfast is also a vital component of the UK economy with the retail value of sales for the breakfast sector estimated at £1,582million.
Cornwall Food and Drink has recognised the direct impact this can have on the Cornish economy with its Real Cornish Breakfast campaign, being launched to tie in with Farmhouse Breakfast Week.
The nice people at Kernow Sausage Company (who are on Twitter at @KernowSausageCo ), have given Foodies South West a pack of Trelawney Traditional Sausages and a pack of Finest Farmhouse Bacon to give to one lucky winner.
All you have to do is send an email to us at FoodiesSouthWest@Gmail.com by noon on Friday January 25 2013, titled “Kernow Sausage Competition”, which includes your name, address and the answer to the insultingly easy question below:
QUESTION: What is the Cornish word for Cornwall?
Your details will not be passed to any third person at all except to get your prize delivered to you if you win. One entry per person and Foodies South West’s decision is final.
