UK - North Yorkshire Ladies in Pigs were talking pork at Leyburn's festival of food. The event began after foot and mouth hit the area and tourism was at an all time low. It now attracts more than 16,000 visitors and most find thier way to LIPS mobile kitchen for a taste of something new.

Leyburn's three day festival is a foodies paradise and it's just one of many events that are becoming a common feature around the UK. They give local farmers and food producers the opportunity to sell their own meat and produce and promote a positive message about British food.

Ladies in Pigs are well versed in educating consumers. The majority of people who buy their meat at the supermarket are unaware of where it comes from or the conditions in which the animals were kept in.

This year two LIPS members also gave a cookery demonstration in the festival food theatre, which created huge interest in its new cook book.

The book contains a selection of different and new recipes, and some old favourites. Copies are available from the mobile kitchen, which will travelling the local and national show circuit across the UK this summer.
