Two Rotherham butchers proved themselves a cut above the rest when they were crowned champions at a regional roadshow in Harrogate.
Paul Coupland and Peter Cusworth proved to judges they create some of the best pork products around.
Paul won the home cured bacon or gammon category, while Peter impressed in the ready meal contest with his free range pork roulade with lime, coconut and pistachio.
A total of 59 butchers battled it out for the prestigious 12 first prizes – making the competition very tough.
Paul said: “My customers like a traditional dry cured bacon so that’s exactly what I produce.”
Peter added: “Ready meals make up around 50 per cent of our business and this particular dish is very popular.”
