The annual Deliciouslyorkshire Taste Awards took place this month and as ever it was Yorkshire’s most delicious event! The Bath Pig won the Best Fresh Meat category with its Italian style porchetta and was a finalist for its Italian red wine and fennel salami coins.
Hundreds of the county’s finest food and drink producers and businesses attended the sparkling black-tie event which was held on Wednesday 6 November at the Pavilions of Harrogate.
Hosted by Yorkshire favourites chef Steph Moon and broadcaster Nigel Barden, the 24 awards including those for Best New Business, Best Yorkshire Breakfast and Best Pork Pie were presented around a delicious and locally sourced three-course meal which included many of this year’s shortlisted and winning products.
With a record number of entries, competition as ever was fierce and this year’s panel of judges which included a host of chefs, food writers, critics and buyers had the enviable task of whittling the entries down into the 2019 shortlist across 3 full days of judging in September.
This year’s winner of the Fresh Meat Category, certainly ticked all the boxes for the judges who described it as “memorable and truly delicious. All the components came together giving this product a great depth of flavour. Perfectly moist with impeccable crackling – a superior piece of meat and a joy to eat!”
