Here at MEAT59 we decided to give our customers a treat, a special collaboration with our pals at Rusty Pig, Ottery St Mary just outside of Exeter.
We give you the “RUSTY59”, a Meat59 signature burger patty, Rusty Pig’s jerk pork, roasted Romano pepper, pickled red onion, charred gem, habanero mayo.
If you haven’t heard of Rusty Pig, they are all about local – sourcing, flavours and people. Owner Robin Rea grew up in Ottery St Mary; after learning about seasonal ingredients and provenance overseas and at River Cottage, he returned to open Rusty Pig in 2011.
The venture is rooted in Robin’s vision for a sustainable, ethical model supporting local producers and farmers, exploiting the best seasonal ingredients and reducing food waste.
MEAT59 and Rusty Pig’s paths crossed for the first time at Nourish Festival in Bovey Tracy around two years ago, we came across their catering wagon and were lured in by the the limited and precise menu. Stood in the queue we overheard the banter going on with the customers and thought “these guys are our kind of folk!” Food did not disappoint and tradition at every on the road event is to seek out Rusty Pig to get our mitts on their grub before it sells out.
They are humble and don’t take themselves too seriously… but they always deliver
Get yourselves over to their place in Ottery St Mary soon http://www.rustypig.co.uk
