The organisers of the Royal Norfolk Show have surpassed themselves again. What a truly fantastic event it is – just how do they manage to make it bigger and better every year? My good buddy Arthur Howell and I went to the show to perform one of our demonstrations at Mary Kemp’s Cookery Theatre in the Food Hall on the first day of the show and were delighted to see how many people had turned up to watch us. That was until we heard the dulcet Yorkshire tones of Saturday Kitchen’s James Martin back stage and remembered we were part of the support act for the day! James did three demos on both days of the show and was top drawer. But even if I do say so myself the audience seemed to enjoy mine and Arthur’s presentation about sausages just as much. Once again we interspersed the serious sausage info with thinly-veiled jokes at each other’s expense, and once again it ended in a draw in the banter stakes. After our demo we took a well earned break to grab some hog roast and a then a quick glass of wine in the Coutts hospitality tent – and no I haven’t got one of their cheque books before you ask. I even had chance to do a quick interview with BBC Norfolk’s Dave Webster which you can hear by clicking on this link tinyurl.com/kxa9sfw
