Triple gold for Chipping Sodbury protege sausage maker Kimberley
CHIPPING Sodbury young butcher Kimberley Daniels is no stranger to trophies and it’s a good job as the 23-year-old has won another string of awards for her handmade sausages.
Kimberley, 23, sizzled once again at the annual BPEX regional finals, held in Exeter earlier this month, winning gold in each of the three categories she entered.
“I was a bit nervous this year but I managed to win gold for all my entries,” she said. “I only entered three this year so to get three out of three isn’t bad.
“I’m really pleased especially as there is so much competition.”
Kimberley, who works at family business Artingstall’s Butchers in the High Street, won for her traditional pork sausage, Italian style pork sausage and a caramelised red onion and tomato flavour. She created them all herself in her constant effort to change the variety on offer to customers.
“I am coming up with new stuff all the time,” said Kimberley, who has been working as a butcher for five years.
“I am trialling a curry flavour sausage which people like and certainly want to try. It is being introduced slowly at the moment and I will be doing seasonal cranberry and rosemary varieties for Christmas.
“I am also using venison and have started doing meatballs, which are so much cheaper than the supermarkets. There are some really exciting things going on at the moment.”
In 2013 Kimberley won the title of Young Sausage Maker of the Year at the awards but was knocked off the top spot by one point this year. She has two years left to enter the category, which is open to butchers aged 25 and under.
