Well, folks, this was it for this year!!! Seven days of heavy duty tastings of bagels and wraps, crackers and cakes, beers and buns, ices and yogurts, cookies and scones, pasta and pizzas – not to mention smoothies, bars and cereals and goodness knows what other goodies!
We finished off with the Innovation award this morning – three judges writing up their notes amidst the debris here…
…and I am not letting on anything about what might have been entered – and certainly not what might have won – except to say that there were some very exciting new products but also quite a lot which, while very good, were really not all that innovative, which is what we were really looking for.
In this session we look at the winners of all of the other categories, apart from the Innovation which is a category on its own. From out of them we pick what we believe to be the ‘best freefrom food for 2014′ – whose creators then get to take Marble Mo home with them for the next year.
And since showing you any picture of the final judging session might just allow someone to recognise a product on the table and start drawing conclusions, I shall leave you with the judges’ team photo, taken to celebrate the end of another year of successful judging!
Tomorrow – what goes on behind the scenes….
