Flying Visit - The Inn Jersey - Passion to Inspire - Freedom Food - Dingley Dell 4th March 2014 — at The Inn, Jersey

Dingley Dell Flying Visit to Jersey a roaring success!

All things piggy were celebrated in style when the Dingley Dell’s Flying Visit dropped into THE INN this week.

Following the journey of the pig from farm to plate, the Dingley Dell event brought together the farmer, from the renowned Dingley Dell Pork farm in Suffolk, Master Butcher and top British chefs, including Michelin starred Mark Poynton, to create a fun night of inspiration and gastronomy that was attended by local restaurateurs and foodies.

Diners were given a Butchery Master class by Shane Burrows of C&K Meats, a talk on animal welfare from the RSPCA’s Freedom Food, then treated to six highly creative pork dishes introduced by the Chefs, all accompanied by a matching wine supplied by Randall’s.

As with the previous 12 events, Murray Chapman from Passion to Inspire was delighted to invite four local catering students from Highlands College to get involved, working on the dishes alongside the award winning chefs in the kitchen. Inspiring the chefs of tomorrow is one of the key elements to the success of the Flying Visits and to date over 180 students have been able to share in the experience.

Students from Highland College Daniel Aires said “I really enjoyed and appreciated the experience and would recommend this type of event to any aspiring chef as it allows them the opportunity to work with acclaimed chefs as well as working with amazing products”.

Antony Noel “found the experience invaluable as it gave him the opportunity to be involved in dishes using techniques and ingredients new to him”.

‘It was an absolute pleasure hosting the Flying Visit at THE INN and working with such an amazing and passionate group of people. All the chefs truly rose to the occasion and produced some spectacular pork dishes, and I know the students were inspired working alongside such talent. All in all it was a fabulous success and we were so pleased to support Jersey Cheshire Home on the night.’

Stephen Smith – Bohemia

Guests were blown away by the immense passion shown by all the people involved, and the whole Flying Visit ethos made the night quite unforgettable. Steve Smith, Michelin starred Chef from Bohemia said ‘Dingley Dell's flying visit was a wonderful evening. Great food, great company, great cause. It's always fantastic to see the students from Highlands College getting involved. Let's hope it becomes a regular event!’

Nick Joy – Managing Director – Loch Duart

Nice to be in touch.
It was a Great evening and I hope your recovery continued after I left.
My quote below:
I am lucky to be invited to such an evening. The food was innovative and often breathtakingly good. To let young chefs work alongside the greats, handling top quality food such as Dingley Dell pork is an important part of continuing the great gastronomic development of this country.
Thanks to all and please invite me again.

A special mention to Martina and her team from Easenmyne who are the exclusive suppliers of Dingley Dell Pork for Jersey and Guernsey .

• Pork products from Suffolk based Dingley Dell are processed locally, using trusted, established partners, to provide a strict provenance.

• The RSPCA’s Freedom Food is the only UK assurance scheme dedicated to farm animal welfare. It approves livestock producers, hauliers and abattoirs against RSPCA farm animal welfare standards. When consumers see the distinctive blue logo on food packaging or menus or in shops, they can be confident that the animal has been reared on farms inspected to higher welfare standards.
• A Passion to Inspire aims to bring the working relationship between education and the catering industry closer together –
to encourage the ‘future of tomorrow – today’ .The initial format was a competition, with a fun and supportive element, to nurture and encourage the students and give them belief in their chosen career. It is open to all students at any level and on any course – front of house and kitchen. ‘Passion’ also gives students and lecturer’s opportunities to visit Freedom Food approved farms and to meet potential employers and the chefs who support the cause.
