The Doody Family is UK's #1 Fan of Faggots!

"The great British faggot is full of flavour and a great belly warmer at this time of year."

A West Midlands family is playing a central role in the quest to raise the profile of a forgotten British dish - faggots!

The Doody family from Wolverhampton has been crowned "The Faggot Family" in a national competition, and to kick off their reign they will launch National Faggot Week.

The family will be touring the country extolling the virtues of the dish, which is best-known for its links with the Black Country.

The Doody family were chosen to front the campaign after impressing judges at the Savoy Hotel in London in November....

Fans of faggots also created this book which you can view by clicking on the picture!

Quick Faggot facts:

Faggots were named after the Latin word for bundle
Faggots were originally made with pig's liver and offal
Faggots are now made from pork liver and pork
