Scotland’s Specially Selected Pork (SSP) campaign is set to be the centre of attention during this week’s Edinburgh Food Festival with a live butchery demonstration planned for tomorrow, July 28.
West Lothian butcher, Stewart McSorley, will be breaking down a pig carcase, donated by Robertson’s Fine Foods of Ayrshire, live on stage to educate the festival audience on different SSP cuts while chef, Scott Lyall, will seek to inspire the gathering with tips on how to create “mouth-watering” pork dishes.
This is part of Quality Meat Scotland’s ‘Do More With Pork’ campaign which is designed to showcase SSP as a quality, affordable and versatile choice for consumers, while also being underpinned by quality assurance schemes which make animal welfare a priority.
QMS’s health and education team will also take part in the festival, offering a range of activities which are geared to explaining the welfare and sustainability aspects of the SSP story.
The free butchery demonstration will begin at 4pm in the Spiegel Tent, St Georges Square, Edinburgh.
