I am delighted to announce that my Wholegrain Mustard with Honey has just been given a 2-star Great Taste award for 2019, which means judges dubbed it above and beyond delicious.
Here are some of the comments of the judges - The taste was a delight, sweet and spicy and the word "delicious" was used repeatedly. Complex and varied flavour profiles that just keep exploding in the mouth. The judges kept going back for more. If it makes it past being eaten in the raw, it would accompany many things! It is not often you enjoy mustard on a teaspoon....we did.
There were 12,772 entries into Great Taste this year and less than 10% achieved a 2-star.
The panel of judges this year included; cook, writer and champion of sustainable food, Melissa Hemsley, Kenny Tutt, MasterChef 2018 champion, author, Olia Hercules, chef and food writer, Gill Meller, Kavi Thakar from Dishoom, food writer and stylist, Georgina Hayden and author and chef, Zoe Adjonyoh, as well as food buyers from Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Sourced Market and Partridges.
What are Great Taste judges looking for?
They’re looking for great texture and appearance. They judge the quality of ingredients and how well the maker has put the food or drink together. But above all, they are looking for truly great taste.
