2 Great Taste Awards

What ? I’ve scooped two Great Taste Awards 2016 after entering for the first time. A 100% Rye Sourdough with caraway was described as ‘A very moist and delicious loaf with very good caraway flavour and a delicate sourdough character, which judges enjoyed.’ The second award went to Liz’s Dark Chocolate and Fennel Oatcakes. ‘Certainly an oatcake with plenty of chew, a good fennel hit, and very buttery….definitely made by a good baker, very evenly shaped and well baked, wholesome and crunchy.’ This has been quite a year ! Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer. Winners are all genuine food people who care about the quality of food and drink they produce. The producers entered 10,000 products with only 141 foods achieving the highest and most coveted rating, three stars. We had 878 foods grabbing 2 stars and 2520 were awarded a 1 star. That means only 35% of entries were accredited – it’s tough.
