The Great Taste Awards

The Great Taste awards judging standards have long been considered by some to be the most rigorous in the UK. Every entry is blind tasted by two teams of experts working separately but simultaneously. Both teams commented on each entry, both teams recommended foods to go forward to the second stage.

Throughout every judging session, at least one supreme jury sat and tasted those foods put forward by their fellow judges. Comprising leading chefs, food writers and buyers, the jury blind tasted every entry the first two panels believed worthy of gold and confirmed the star rating.

All entries awarded the coveted 3 star gold (there were just 83 out of a total 4873 entries in 2009) were put forward for major awards, including the Supreme Champion.
