The month long promotion has been put together by G’s Fresh and Powters Sausages.

The purpose of the month-long competition is to recognise and celebrate the Protected Geographic Indication (PGI) status that has been awarded to Fenland celery and Newmarket sausages.

Anthony Gardiner of G’s Fresh said: “Not many counties can boast two PGI status products so we think it’s high time we celebrate this.”

Each dish will be judged for its taste, presentation and the story behind the idea, by an anonymous panel.

Mr Gardiner said the winner will receive a trophy “be hailed an eminent PGI Hero and be placed firmly on the regional food map”.

Grant Powter, who produces Newmarket sausages, said: “We are encouraging everyone in the county to get involved.
