Oh what a night ….

The Great Taste Awards’ Dinner was quite a night for so many reasons, but not least because of the award picked up by Denhay – crowned Best Speciality from the South West for the dry cured unsmoked organic back bacon they produce for Duchy Originals – and it was much deserved – (ok, we may be biased, but it is simply incredible bacon!)

Some awards are a one off, a flash in the pan, but for Denhay this is simply the very latest in a long line that really sets their bacon apart. Since 2000, Denhay Bacon has picked up 92 awards – and 48 of these have been the top gong, a coveted Gold award for taste and quality.  Denhay has a trophy cabinet that would make Sir Alex Ferguson green with envy!

From Great Taste Awards and Taste of the West Awards, to  Bacon Connoisseurs’ Awards and awards from county shows and farming industry awards – you name it Denhay has won it – and for good reason.  If you’ve ever tasted Denhay bacon I’m sure you’ll agree, but if you haven’t……….. what are you doing reading this?! Pop to the shops now to get your hands on some, and be prepared to have the greatest bacon sandwich of your life!

Another big winner on the night was The Arch House Deli, which is in Clifton Village in Bristol – which won the title of Deli of the Year 2011 – a competition created, organised and run by the dedicated team at Olives Et Al. It was a hard fought competition involving hundreds of delis up and down the UK, and several rounds of rigorous judging (we know because Joanne was there alongside the judges when they were rigorously judging!).

Following all the rounds of judging, a mystery shopper and an evening on the edge of their seats (squeaky bum time!) at the Great Taste Awards dinner, the couple who own and run the Arch House Deli Debbie Atherton and David Greenman enjoyed a great night of celebrations followed by lots of lovely press coverage for their fabulous deli including………interviews on BBC Bristol, ITV Westcountry News, Western Daily Press, and big drum roll, building tension now, a fantastic double page spread in The Times!!!   Congratulations!
