If your favourite meal is a generous serving of bangers and mash then an opportunity of a lifetime could be waiting for you…

The successful applicant will taste hundreds of sausages and help to decide which takes home the Supreme Sausage Champion crown as well as multiple regional titles.

The lucky taster will spend a day at the  Regional Food Academy at Harper Adams University in Newport, Shropshire, on 3rd October, as part of an expert judging panel under the guidance of Keith Fisher – a Master Butcher and ‘sausageologist’

As a Sausage Judge, they’ll handle raw sausages to examine their weight and consistency, assess their colour and texture, measure bangers to ensure they fit within the competition’s guidelines and taste cooked sausages to determine their texture, meat and fat ratio and flavour. What a job!
