Great Taste, the UK’s largest blind-tasted food awards scheme, has turned up a rich crop of winners from Fife, with two products gaining two stars and eleven gaining one star.
The competition is organized by the Guild of Fine Food, and is the acknowledged benchmark for speciality food and drink.
Great Taste is simply about taste, not clever branding or smart packaging, and the awards are judged by over 400 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, members of the Women’s Institute, producers and a host of food writers and journalists.
When a product wears a Great Taste label it carries a badge of honour but more importantly, the Great Taste logo is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product.
There were 10,000 entries in 2014, and the judging took place in Dorset at Guild HQ and also in Belfast, Devon and Middlesex.
