Celebrate Bangers ahead of Bonfire Night with Super Sausage Saturday

Thomas of Helmsley marks UK Sausage Week by offering tastings of its sizzling new range developed with celebrity chef Stephanie Moon

To mark UK Sausage Week (30th October – 5th November), Thomas of Helmsley will be offering tastings of its brand new range of sausages on 4th November, developed by local celebrity chef Stephanie Moon and the deli’s head butcher Michael Foster.

Dubbed ‘Super Sausage Saturday’, the event will run from 10am onwards. The new sausages include a special Yorkshire Bratwurst, a Mango, Lime and Ginger Pork Sausage and the ‘Yorkshire Special’ – made using Henderson’s Relish, breadcrumbs from the bakery’s own freshly made bread and locally-produced caramelized apple and cider chutney. These will be available for visitors to try, along with the shop’s ever popular Apple and Cider Sausages, Old English Sausages, Chive Sausages and the company’s award-winning Cumberland Sausage.

The event is the second in a series of tastings designed to introduce the deli and its products to customers following a full refurbishment. The deli reopened last month after £750,000 renovations, which included combining the town’s Thomas the Baker and Thomas of Helmsley shops into one. The store now offers a much wider range of products, including more ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook meals.

John Thomas, founder of Thomas of Helmsley, said: “Having just developed a brand new range of sausages for the deli reopening last month, it seemed like a great idea to mark UK Sausage Week with a day of free tastings in store. With the event running just before Bonfire Night, it’s one way to enjoy bangers without having to wait until it’s dark or stand out in the cold!

“We’re very proud of our new range of sausages, which were developed as part of the re-opening last month by our talented head butcher and the brilliant Stephanie Moon. We like to honour our Yorkshire heritage, which customers will be able to see with our Yorkshire Special and the delicious Yorkshire Bratwurst – perfect for the festive season. The smell alone will make you feel like you’re at a Christmas market! The Mango, Lime and Ginger Sausage has a much more international flavour, which makes it very versatile. We can also offer advice on recipes, meal ideas and accompaniments – in fact we ‘relish’ the challenge. Sorry, I know sausage puns are the wurst….”

Thomas of Helmsley is part of the Thomas the Baker group, a family run business established in 1981 which now has a chain of 30 bake shops across Yorkshire. For more information go to www.thomasthebaker.co.uk
