Fashionable Faggots Championed by Top Chefs

As any fan of Mr Brain’s will know, our faggots have stood the test of time. However, for everyone else out there, this delicious tea time treat is making a comeback.

Originally named ‘Savoury Ducks’ in the Middle Ages faggots became a great British staple during the First World War and were then revived in the 1980s, when Mr Brain’s began to champion the market. Now, thanks to top chefs such as Tom Kerridge and Hugh Fearnley-Wittingstall, and supermarkets such as Waitrose launching their own brand faggots, shoppers are once again embracing the nostalgic foods of their childhoods. The British public are also becoming much more conscious of cutting down food waste, which has resulted in the rise of the ‘nose-to-tail’ eating trend and increased popularity of more traditional cuts of meat, such as pig cheeks and bone marrow.

So, whether they are an old favourite or a new discovery, make sure you don’t forget your Mr Brain’s faggots with mushy peas and mash potato!
