The Great Taste Awards: Part 1

Posted · Add Comment

The mammoth undertaking that constitutes the annual Great Taste Awards is nearing this year’s conclusion. Out of 10,000 entries, the judges have produced a list of the top 50 Uk food products. And that’s only the beginning; in another few days you can find out who has scooped the top regional awards as well as the winner of this year’s Supreme Champion gong. Those awards will be made on 5th September at the Great Taste Golden Fork Dinner in London. In the meantime, you can benefit from the Great Taste judges dedication to consuming large quantities of food and drink with a taster of three who made it into the top 50; three more will follow next week…
