Hog Roast Bakewell
There is nothing like a secret recipe to keep people guessing. Certain popular fizzy drinks have recipes that are kept under lock and key whilst certain takeaway food is known for their secret ingredients. It’s all part of the mystery that give these things a little extra romance and intrigue. But it’s not just the big brand names who indulge in secret recipe wars. It goes on in some very unlikely places, such as Bakewell in Derbyshire.
The Bakewell Pudding may not sound like the title of an Agatha Christie novel but the intrigue behind the owners of the original Bakwell Pudding recipe is certainly deserving of a novel. It appears that three Bakewell stores all claim to each own the original recipe for Bakewell Pudding. Maybe the answer will never come to light but such a mystery surrounding a pudding recipe is so very British.
There are no secrets when it comes to hog roast, in fact the only mystery surrounding this fine old feast is why it has taken so long for it to become a popular choice as a special event food. Maybe the answer is written on the back of the original Bakewell pudding recipe (wherever that may be). The Hog Roast Bakewell Mystery. Now that does sound good!
