Avoca Wins at Great Taste Awards 2016

Hats off to our incredibly hard working Avoca chefs for winning Gold Stars in the prestigious Great Taste Awards across a range of different Avoca foods from hot dishes, biscuits & brekkies to the famous Avoca Christmas Pud. 

Organised by the Guild of Fine Food, it is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink and has been described as the 'Oscars' of the food world & the 'epicurean equivalent of the Booker Prize'. Out of over 10,000 entries judged by more than 500 industry experts across the UK and Ireland, 3,539 awards were announced on Thursday July 28.


So we're very proud our 7 awards for Lamb Tagine, Oat and Seed bars, Persian Lamb, Smoked Chipotle Chilli Beef, Good Mood Vegetarian Chilli, Berry Granola & our Christmas Pudding, all available in our Foodmarkets. Of course, we already know how popular these are with our customers and that's the biggest prize of all. However, we're naturally delighted - and for our friends at James Whelan Butchers and The Lismore Food Company who were winners too.


Featured below is our newly award winning Lamb Tagine, which you'll find in tubs in Avoca Foodmarkets, or our At Home Catering Menu. Oh & you'll find the gorgeous serving dishes in the homewares section of our shops.


Included in the winners list is our Smoked Chipotle Beef which features in the lunch menu in our Suffolk Street restaurant and on our Avoca at Home Catering menu.  And of course, you'll find all of our award winning dishes in Avoca Foodmarkets. So lots of opportunities to try them out for yourself.
What a great way to start the bank holiday weekend.
