Saddleback Pork Belly

Judges Comments: As soon as we saw this pork our mouths were watering, it's outstanding in every way. Perfect crackling, melt in the mouth gorgeous. We wanted to keep the tray but sadly had to pass to the next table. Well done to a fantastic producer.

Taste: Silky smooth fat and a great depth of flavour to both fat and meat. The crackling is ridiculously good. Great sweetness to the meat.

Texture A good texture, tender meat, which has caramelised really well in the pan - it has an excellent rounded flavour, rich and deep.

Red Ruby Rib of Beef: Judges Comments

Texture & Taste Good looking joint, with a good size and colour, good proportion of fat to lean - and the fat is a very nice colour. It cuts beautifully. Enticing meaty aroma.
