Great Taste Awards 2016
The great taste awards are in and we are very happy to say we didn't come out empty handed.
Now the great taste awards kick off through March to early July and see trained food writers come together over 49 judging days to give their opinion on a selection of goodies from around the UK. B E S T J O B E V E R !!
And as they say "It’s simply about taste – the kind that stops you in your tracks and makes you go WOW!"
The Winners with the Wow Factor
The Plum Fragipane Slab - Outstanding
Our Plum Frangipane really was the star of show and received some lovely comments.
"An appealing fruity appearance. The pastry base is excellent, both sweet and tart and generous in distribution. The almond layer is delightfully tender. Beautifully balance and hugely enjoyable"
"Superb layers of flavour, crisp buttery pastry. An accomplished bake"
"Lovely buttery smell and almond flavour running through"
Not bad, not bad at all!!
The Triple Chocolate Cookie - Simply delicious
We're super excited our triple chocolate cookie got a cheeky mention in the awards. They've been with us from the start back on the Kings Road and still as popular on our markets today.
"Very generous sized cookie. They have a great texture, chewy and also crunchy. There's an appealing chocolaty aroma brownie flavour"
"That's a WOW cookie!"
The Hummingbird Cake - Simply delicious
This fruity number came out on top. This is one of our all time favourite cakes and it's great to see we're not the only one that enjoys!
"We all really enjoyed the moist banana cake layers, not too thick or thin, well bound together with a delicate butter cream."
"An impressive bake"
"If this cake was in a deli, this would walk off the shelf"
Well, what are you waiting for!
The Pastel de Nata - Simply delicious
We just love these little numbers, ever since we started producing the pasteis de nata we have worked ruthlessly to create an authentic delicious product. I mean, they have been around for 300 years;
"Very true to its traditional style"
Making the monks proud!
