Thanks to Anthony Creswell at Ummera Smoked Products, Timoleague for sending me news of his success at the Great Taste Awards. Anthony is celebrating after winning two prestigious Great Taste Awards. Ummera has been presented with a much-desired Gold Great Taste Award for its Smoked Chicken (2 Stars) and its Organic Gravadlax (1 Star). The Great Taste Awards, which is organised by the Guild of Fine Food and often referred to as the Oscars of the food industry, is this year celebrating its 15th

anniversary. West Cork food producers have always appeared on the honours list and this year is no exception with 5 enterprises in total recognized. Follain Teo in Ballyvourney won awards for their orange marmalade and their strawberry jam. Gubbeen Farmhouse won three awards for Smoked Streaky Bacon, Vension Salami and Ham. Mella’s  Fudge was likewise presented with 3 awards for butter fudge, rum & raisin fudge and walnut fudge. And Gwen’s Chocolates won an award for Dark Chocolate with fresh lavender. Well done and congratulations to one and all!
