Alnwick butcher in running for awards

An Alnwick butcher is in the running for top industry awards for four of its products.

Turnbull’s, on Market Street, is in the line-up for the Q Guild Smithfield Awards.

It will be hoping to bag gold awards for its fresh chorizo sausage, beef and caramelised onion burger, traditional English black pudding and chicken Dijons with the chance of also being crowned supreme champion in the competition.

Judging by panels of food and meat industry enthusiasts has now taken place and awards will be announced and presented at the Butcher’s Hall in Smithfield, London, on Thursday, November 13, by Matthew Fort, food and drink editor at the Guardian for more than a decade, author of several award-winning books on food and a judge on the popular TV series, The Great British Menu.
