Up along the River Dolphin to the market town of Rothwell for Spitting Pig Yorkshire this week, for a local fundraiser in a church hall. Believe it or not, Rothwell’s almost as famous for its food as Spitting Pig Yorkshire, being part of the Rhubarb Triangle. ‘The Rhubarb Triangle?’ I hear you ask – ‘he must be joking.’ He’s not. Rothwell and the area around it is exceedingly well known for the quality of its forced rhubarb. Right around now the rhubarb farmers of Rothwell will be moving the last of their rhubarb into darkened sheds to warm up and grow over winter. Now rhubarb is an acquired taste, not everyone is very fond of it. What everyone, and from the evidence of last week especially the good folk of Rothwell, is very fond of is a top-quality hot pork roll carved fresh off the spit by Spitting Pig Yorkshire. They were queuing round the block for them! I’m not a big fan of queuing – my feet get tired – but I suppose if you have to stand a queue, you may as well stand in one which has a juicy hot pork roll with stuffing, gravy and apple sauce liberally applied at the end of it. And from the looks on the faces of the attendees at the event, it was worth the wait. Good news all round – funds raised for the renovation of the church so that local activity groups could use it, and a fantastic meal of tender roast pork buns for the parishioners who came out in support. I love a happy ending, don’t you?
