When it comes to food, it doesn’t get much better than seasonal goodies during the winter months. From roast dinners with all the trimmings to mulled wine and puddings covered in a brandy sauce. And who could forget the star of the show? No, we’re not talking about the turkey, we’re thinking about pigs in blankets.
And if you love nothing more than a sausage wrapped in bacon, you won’t want to miss out on the fantastic opportunity one pub has up for grabs.The Oast House in Manchester is looking for a special person to taste test their pigs in blankets and provide feedback on their Christmas nibbles menu.
To make things better, they’re offering to pay someone £500 to do it.
But there’s a catch – they’re only looking to hire someone who lives in Manchester.
In a post on Airtasker, the pub’s development chef, Mark, wrote: “Are you a self-confessed Christmas Dinner connoisseur? Do you love pigs in blankets? Do you love the trimmings as much as the turkey? If yes, then I’ve got the ideal task for you.
We’re searching for one Mancunian resident to attend the ultimate Christmas taste-test for this year’s star of the show – pigs in blankets – and give us some honest feedback to help us perfect our Christmas nibbles menu. “One lucky candidate will be chosen to taste the best of Christmas and attend an exclusive session at The Oast House.”
Mark goes on to explain that the taste tester will be served a range of pigs in blankets on the day – each portion paired with a twist. The restaurant is aiming to discover whether traditional pigs in blankets are still the best or whether they can create something that improves on the classic Christmas combo.
Those wishing to apply for the position don’t need to have any specific qualifications other than the ability to type on a computer.
All the restaurant is asking you do is share your funniest Christmas memory. They explained: “Simply click ‘make an offer’ and share a story of your funniest Christmas moment to date
“Maybe you committed a major festive faux pas, such a burning the turkey to a crisp, and having to settle on sandwiches for Christmas dinner? Or perhaps your family dog knocked over the Christmas tree and ate half the presents that were under it?
“The applicant with the story that makes us laugh or cry the most will be given the chance to join us at the tasting session.” No closing date was listed on the post, but the pub’s Christmas menu launches on December 1 so it’s safe to say you better get those stories sent in sharpish!
