Charles backs British mutton campaign

The Prince of Wales is backing a campaign to promote British mutton this winter. The campaign, which is being co-ordinated by the Academy of Culinary Arts, will culminate in a "festival of mutton".

Prince Charles is a known supporter of mutton, which has fallen out of favour with the British public since the Second World War. Last year, he held a "mutton summit" with farmers, leading chefs and meat trade representatives.

Brian Turner, chef and president of the academy, said it was an honour to respond to the Prince's plea. "Restaurants and other food service outlets have a key role to play in leading a renaissance of this delicious but often overlooked British meat."

The academy is keen to hear from any restaurant that offers mutton on its menu and wants to take part in the nationwide campaign. For more information, contact or 0870 242 3219.
