Pupils' culinary creations hit supermarket
7:30am Sunday 8th July 2012 in News
A SUPERMARKET chain is stocking new sausages which were created by primary school pupils.
Children at Hutton Manor School, in Rayleigh Road, Hutton, cooked up a treat which scooped their school £1,000 and the chance to have their special sausage on shelves at ten branches of Waitrose.
The sausage, named the Hutton Manor Breakfast sausage, will be made by Musk’s and includes pork, smoked bacon, mushrooms, rusk, tomato and Worcester sauce.
Musk’s, makers of the original Newmarket sausages, teamed up with Waitrose to run a competition to design a new flavoured sausage to celebrate what is best in British food.
The calibre of entries was very high, with entries from a number of schools.
Paula Hobbs, headteacher at the school, said: “The children and staff were ecstatic when we heard the news.
“When I first saw the competition I thought it was a great opportunity to try something completely different and the enthusiasm of the children and staff ensured that the whole project was a total success.”
