A pop-up in Cardiff will be giving away free gourmet hot dogs, complete with luxury table service, for one day only on 24 September 2018.
The ‘Posh Sausage Pop-Up’ will be open for business from 12pm outside the Capitol Centre in Cardiff city centre, with shoppers urged to arrive early due to a first-come-first-served basis and limited availability of ‘posh ‘dogs’.
Run by Porc Blasus, the home for Wales’s specialist porc farmers, producers and butchers, this one-off pop-up with a twist is set to showcase the best of porc from Wales to the people of Cardiff.
A team of black-tie waiters will greet diners and offer luxury table service while they dine on some of Wales’s finest porc produce, all cooked at the portable hot dog cart by Elwen Roberts of Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC).
Kirstie Jones, Market Development Officer at HCC, explains:
“We’re really passionate to have a network of featured suppliers who are proud to produce delicious, quality pork in Wales. Our porc is reared in smaller herds and reared for longer, which means bigger flavour. Not only that, but the climate and landscape in Wales provides a natural environment to produce quality porc.
“This is why we wanted to showcase the best of our posh sausages and prove that, when it comes to porc from Wales, you don’t need a five star kitchen to produce a gourmet food experience.”
Choosing the best sausage for the job was no easy feat, as Kirstie elaborates:
“In July, at the Royal Welsh Show, we ran a competition amongst our producers asking them to put their ‘best sausage forward’, so we could find the perfect supplier for the pop-up.
“All entries were very high quality and it was a tough call, but with the help of judge Scott Quinnell, we selected our winner in Gwynedd-based Oinc Oink, with their amazing blend of the finest porc from Wales, coupled with South Caernarfon Creameries’ Vintage Welsh Cheddar.”
“We’re really excited to open our Posh Sausage Pop-Up and can’t wait to showcase the wonderful Welsh sausages from Oinc Oink, completely free.
“We hope the people of Cardiff enjoy a hot-dog stand with a difference and enjoy truly local produce, with a five star waiting service to match”.
To avoid disappointment, head to the Posh Sausage Pop-Up from 12pm on 24 September 2018, located outside the Capitol Centre.
