Six ‘Great Taste’ golds for Wex­ford’s Wild about prod­ucts

New Ross Standard - - NEWS -

Lo­cal ar­ti­san pro­ducer ‘Wild about’ has won six Gold Stars at this year’s In­ter­na­tional Great Taste Awards held in Eng­land.

Based in Mon­amolin, Wild about pro­duce sea­sonal range of chut­neys, pre­serves, syrups, oils and dress­ings from lo­cally sourced wild in­gre­di­ents.

The win­ning prod­ucts in­cluded Elder­berry and Ap­ple pre­serve, Groovy Goose­berry rel­ish, Celtic Roots chut­ney, Rasp­berry and Mada­gas­can Vanilla jam and Hairy Hot Chilli oil.

Fiona Fal­coner of Wild about said they are thrilled as it was such a tough com­pe­ti­tion.

‘It is in­cred­i­bly dif­fi­cult to win a sin­gle star, let alone six,’ said Fiona. ‘ We are pure ar­ti­sans, we do not use any im­ported, pre-packed or pre­pared in­gre­di­ents, every­thing we make is by hand.’

Wex­ford Food Pro­duc­ers re­ally amazed the judges at this year’s In­ter­na­tional Great Taste Awards such as O’Neill’s Ba­con who were awarded four Gold Stars, Killowen Farm won eight Gold Stars, Poach­ers Tonic re­ceived six Gold Stars, Staffords Bak­ery got five Gold Stars and Bean & Goose Choco­lates got one Gold Star.
