Flipping grill-iant!

AN AWARD-winning burger made by a farm shop in South Cave is in contention to win a national competition.

Drewton’s Farm Shop recently received some grill-iant news when its lamb and mint burger made it through to the final of ‘England’s Best Burger’ competition, run by EBLEX, the organisation for beef and lamb levy payers in England.

The final is made up of 23 companies and just 30 out of 100 burgers that were entered remain in the running to be named best in the country. All 30 burgers, including Drewton’s lamb and mint burger, have been given a Gold Award for making the final.

Drewton’s is hopeful its burger will now claim first prize after the final round of judging, with the winner to be announced at the prestigious Meat Management Awards on 24 May.

Katie Taylor, owner of Drewton’s, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to reach the final.

“All the burgers and sausages we offer are very popular and are made in-house as well.”

The England’s Best Burger challenge is split into two categories - ‘Independent Butcher or Caterer’ and ‘Manufacturer.’ Drewton’s burger is competing in the independent category.

The company also entered its steak burger which won a Silver Award.

England’s Best Burger entries have to be made from either beef, veal, lamb or mutton.
