Organic pork pie maker, Brockleby’s, has been given the royal thumbs up.Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, paid a visit to the Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire-based company’s stand during a visit to Warwickshire’s Royal Show and decided to take one of its pies back for Prince Charles to sample.Charles is no stranger to organic products, which he produces at his Highgrove home. Said Brockleby’s owner, Ian Jalland: “We’ve worked really hard on perfecting the recipe and we know the Prince is a great supported of organic produce.”The company is the only producer of organic versions of the area’s famous pastry in Melton, with the pastry being made from organic, unbleached flour. The pie uses cuts of free-range, rare-breed, organic saddleback pork and is handmade at Brockleby’s in-store bakery.An EU ruling means that from October only pies made in the area will be able to bear the town’s name.

Even if that’s the case on your campus, you still may want to head out for a different dining experience.According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American household spends about $3,000 a year dining out (which includes delivery and take out). Restaurants charge a whopping 325% markup on their meals; the cost for service and convenience adds up. So, when foodies opt to indulge in dining out, they should make the most of the experience.Frugal foodie bloggers say dining out on the cheap, even as a student, is possible. The key is moderation (isn’t it always?). Here are some additional tips to eat well during your college years.Research deals: You may be surprised by the dining deals found on sites like GroupOn.com, LivingSocial.com or Restaurant.com. And while we’re talking deals, be sure to follow all your favorite restaurants on social media as well. You’ll be the first to know about any promotions, specials or discounts.Try the buddy system: Grab a likeminded frugal friend with similar discerning tastes and split an appetizer and one entrée.Explore locally: The best food may be found on a food truck or at some hidden away dive, so get to know your surroundings. Check out the local scene and upcoming community events calendar. Are there any plans for restaurant week or food truck rodeos? Do area restaurants give discounts to students?Timing is everything: Choose lunch and happy hour instead of dinner. They are some of the best times to enjoy a great meal at a reduced price.
