We're celebrating a double triumph in the Guild of Fine Food’s 2013
Great Taste Awards after two of our most popular offerings were awarded gold stars
in the nation’s most trusted and recognised food and drink awards scheme.
Our 'Chef's Homemade Steak & Cut Throat Ale
Pie’ was successful in the Signature Dish category. This class
is open to any deli, farm shop or food hall chef across the UK and each dish must be made
and sold on the premises. The pie - well known to customers at our waterside bistro and farm shop - features steak from cattle reared just 1.5
miles away, while the ale is brewed in nearby Leek, Staffordshire.
The second gold star has been awarded to the 'Chef's
Homemade Triple Chocolate Brownie’ in the Cakes & Pastries category. Again
available to enjoy in the bistro or to take home from the farm shop, this
indulgent dessert features a dark chocolate brownie with large milk and white
pride ourselves on delicious, fresh, local produce – so it is fantastic to see
two of these homemade dishes endorsed by the prestigious Guild of Fine Food. Entries go through a rigorous and independent blind judging process. It’s not about
smart packaging or clever marketing – it’s all about taste.
"This recognition is a reward for the hard work
our team of chefs and butchers put in to source the finest local produce and
create these mouthwatering new dishes. We look forward to welcoming customers
to try these award-winners for themselves!"
Great Taste is the world’s largest and most rigorous food
awards scheme involving over 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind
a result of the gold star achievements, Aston Marina will be able to display
the widely recognised Great Taste Awards 2013 logo on site and on packaging as
an endorsement of the quality of its products.
