Delicious. PRODUCE AWARDS 2017


Following the success of our first ever Produce Awards last year, they’re back – and they’re bigger and even better. In January we asked you to nominate your favourite artisan food: produce you go out of your way to buy, produce that makes meals sing. From the Isle of Skye to the Isle of Wight, nominations poured in, as did inspiring stories about the skill and passion of the people who make that food. Britain has some of the best produce in the world, and these awards celebrate that. Turn the page to find out how more than 1,000 nominations were judged and whittled down to just eight outstanding winners.

There’s a commitment that underpins everything delicious. does: a respect for food and the way it’s produced. We live in times where so much food is mucked about with, to the point where nourishment and how something tastes appear to be the least important aspects. Swathes of people in the UK don’t know where their food comes from – not to mention how to prepare or cook it. But there is still joy to be found if you look hard. A beautifully made ice cream, a well aged steak from a grass-fed cow, a soft-boiled free-range egg with a vibrant yellow yolk, jam made like granny used to, from seasonal berries – these are simple pleasures to shout about, wonder over and celebrate. Yet a great deal of hard work lies behind such pleasures.

That’s what these awards are about: finding the best of British produce and celebrating the people who work so hard behind the scenes to produce and make that food. Judging alongside Matthew Fort, Andi Oliver and Ian Wild from Westminster Kingsway College (which provided the fantastic venue – thank you!) and the other judges was (next to my little brother’s wedding) the highlight of my year. We couldn’t be prouder to introduce the winners to you over the course of the following 13 pages. Look out for stories and recipes from each of them during 2018. It promises to be a very tasty year…
