The Great Taste Awards 2023

| 1st August 2023
This morning I woke a little twitchy, the day I had been waiting for has eventually arrived.

It was last Christmas that I started to decided which of our specials we should enter into the Guild of Fine Food Great Taste Awards, I submitted the entries in January and we prepared, packaged and delivered them in March.

Then we waited.

Until 10am today.

We are now very excited to announce that this year we have won a whopping THREE Awards!
Great Taste Award – Number 1

First, for our infamous Apple & Chilli Jelly – Regular readers will remember us joining BBC Two’s Top of the Shop with Tom Kerridge with this popular preserve.

Come and make your own on Introduction To Pickles & Preserves Wednesday 30th August, 10am – 3.30pm

Great Taste Award – Number 2

Second, for our Cranberry & Pecan Sourdough – perfect served with a cheese board or simply toasted for breakfast.

Come and make your own on Full Day Making Sourdough Saturday 9th September, 10am – 4pm

Great Taste Award – Number 3

Finally, as we predicted back in March, this is the year for our Apricot Couronne as an Advent Wreath at Christmas and a crown for both Easter and the Coronation, it’s just too tempting to have it available all year through!

Join us online to make your own with Making Apricot Advent Wreath (Virtual) Monday 4th December, 6-8pm

We have ordered a stash of stickers to proudly place on each of these products as we sell them from our Micro Bakery over the coming weeks and months.

Thanks for your ongoing support and feedback on all that we do…

Coming up at Hen Corner:
Plus a new season of online baking courses on Monday evenings, 6-8pm, starting with Introduction To Bread Making (Virtual) on Monday 4th September
Don’t forget – if you’ve been on a course before, email me for your 20% discount!
