‘So much excitement here at Foods Matter! As the first day of judging dawns, the bellows are blowing for the furnaces behind the ovens, the maids and under-servants are scurrying about, readying the formal judging rooms, and the products are beaming under their cling-filmed plates, showing off their best bits and revealing their most flattering angles… Thank you all for getting your products to us in time, some by the skin of their teeth, and we wish you all the very best luck – again we cry ‘may the best products win!’…….
So said Cressida this morning on Facebook – and she was so right! And here they are, the Day 1 Judges – hard at work on the Store Cupboard category – all 43 entries!!! They had already worked their way through an interesting ‘raw food category’ (and had some heated exchanges about the nutritional benefits of broccoli) and the hardier judges were all set for a final session on gluten-free beer…….
Here they are looking comparing colours six hours later…..
Tomorrow we move on to ‘Food to go’, Pasta and Pizza and one of our new categories, ‘After dinner foods’….
