Pork is scratched off the menu for Jamie Oliver's diplomatic dinners
by Amar Singh
Jamie Oliver may have lobbied us to buy British pork but he won't be serving it to the world's most powerful leaders at next week's G20 banquet in Downing Street.
The chef, whose recent TV series Jamie Saves Our Bacon saw him champion pig welfare, has removed pork from the menu of his six-course meal because it could offend Muslim guests.
The Saudi Arabian, Turkish and Indonesian delegations are said to have requested that no pork be served and that halal food is available for leaders such as King Abdullah of the Saudi royal family and Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, president of Indonesia.
