Our butcher Tom shared a stage with the Happy Pears at the weekend. Of course Tom stole the show and the 2 pears were so impressed with Tom they called to see him at work before they left for Wicklow.

We will forgive them for cooking Tom a veggie dish.

These are Roz’s comments on our pudding.

“Bacon trim, spices, seasoning, rusk, blood, oatmeal, water, onion and pearl barley are used well here to make a creamy, smooth style of pudding which I liked more than some tasters who found it a bit too dense.

The understated spices and subtle flavour were enjoyed by all tasters. Delicious spread on buttered toast like a paté. SuperValu and independents.”
