Great tasting winners awarded gold stars
THE Traditional Beef Company is celebrating the news that its dry aged fillet steaks were awarded two stars in the prestigious Great Taste Awards 2013.
The Farley-based company also won a further star for its gourmet burgers in the world’s largest and most rigorous food awards scheme, which involves more than 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting.
Robin Pitkin, founder of The Traditional Beef Company said: “We are delighted with this year’s results, we strive to produce the best beef possible from our family-run farm in Farley.
“This is a real achievement as almost 10,000 products entered into Great Taste 2013 and just 624 have been awarded two stars.”
Judges are presented with anonymous samples and they taste, confer and retaste before making the decision on whether a product should be a one, two or three-star winner.
In total more than 12 judges will have tasted and commented on each product.
The Traditional Beef Company supplies beef via its website traditionalbeef.
It also attends the farmers’ market in Salisbury every Wednesday at the Poultry Cross and supplies beef to a number of local pubs and restaurants including the UK Dining Pub of the Year 2012, The Beckford Arms in Fonthill Gifford, near Tisbury.
l There was also good news for Pure Punjabi Ltd of Downton after their tandoori masala was awarded one gold star in the Great Taste Awards.
Co-director Safia Bellamy said: “Having left my job in London, I decided to develop the company that I own with my mother and test the market with our products.
“As a small artisan producer, we are absolutely thrilled that our tandoori masala has won this prestigious award.”
