Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards 2018: Food Product of the Year

Archant

It’s hardly surprising that there’s such good food coming out the Cotswolds - the entire region is stuffed full of beautiful local ingredients, and there’s a real passion for creating good, honest food. Despite the multitude of delicious products on offer, there is one that has shown itself to be a cut above the rest...

The Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards are one of the biggest events in the local calendar and it is hugely anticipated by the region’s food and drink industry all year round.

We champion the best local producers, suppliers and businesses that are passionate about the Cotswold countryside and the future of our local environment.

Thanks to both the nominations of the public and our well-respected judges, we have picked a winner worthy of the ‘Food Product of the Year’ Award, sponsored by the Royal Three Counties Show.

This year’s finalists

Gelato, Moo Meadows, Epwell

Moo Meadow’s Gelato was described by judges as being beautifully smooth and creamy with a stunning array of flavours. They were particularly impressed by the production of the gelato as the milk is from their own free range cows. Cream is not added like in traditional ice-cream and results in the gelato being smooth yet light in taste and texture. Judges noted that you would not be disappointed in adding this to your next dinner party.

Truffles, Costèllo + Hellerstein, Nailsworth

Simple yet luxurious, judges praised the Truffles from Costello + Hellerstein. The taste and quality of each hand crafted truffle is superb. They were particularly impressed with the well matched flavours and the simple understated packaging which holds beautifully placed little cases, which in turn enhances the luxurious feel of the product. Available at many retailers it was noted to be a beautiful treat or gift.

And the winner is...

Gloucester Marmalade, The Artisan Kitchen, Gloucester

Judges were impressed with the newest product from The Artisan Kitchen, Gloucester Marmalade. Described as delicious, mouth-watering, lovely and smooth, judges noted there was no going back to your usual brand after trying it. Made with Gloucester cider, local apple juice and sweet and bitter oranges, it truly makes a wonderful tasting marmalade. They were impressed with the clear and precise packaging and loved how each jar is homemade.
