We had the pleasure of judging at this year’s Great Taste Awards both in London and at their HQ in Dorset.  It is a hard but exciting experience.  Tasting, evaluating and giving feedback to a wide variety of products.

What do the black and gold Great Taste star labels mean?

You’ve seen the black & gold Great Taste star labels on products, but do you know what they actually mean?  Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food. All products in the line-up for judging are blind-tasted: every product is removed from its packaging so it cannot be identified before entering the judging process.
