The World’s Orig­i­nal Mar­malade Awards and Fes­ti­val

Country Life Every Week - - Reel Life -

❍ Now in their 11th year, The World’s Orig­i­nal Mar­malade Awards and Fes­ti­val have been putting mar­malade-mak­ing on the map since they were founded by Jane Hasell-mccosh in 2005. Spon­sored by Fort­num & Ma­son and Mack­ays, they cel­e­brate the art of pre­serv­ing and the joy of mar­malade in all its cit­rusy forms

❍ En­tries come from all over the world, and win­ning can open se­ri­ous doors—last year’s Dou­ble Gold win­ner Sarah Churchill now has her Seville orange and Aperol mar­malade stocked by Fort­num & Ma­son

❍ In 2017, the awards will be at their spir­i­tual home of Dale­main Man­sion, Cum­bria, for a week­end of fun, feast­ing and judg­ing. Re­flect­ing their in­creas­ing in­ter­na­tional clout (Ade­laide in Aus­tralia now has its own off­shoot), there’s a new cat­e­gory for in­ter­na­tional and Com­mon­wealth mar­malades this year, as well as an over­all award for the best ar­ti­san pro­ducer

❍ The Awards and Fes­ti­val will take place on Satur­day, March 18 and Sun­day, March 19. You can sub­mit your mar­malade for any of the cat­e­gories un­til Fe­bru­ary 10, by which time, your en­try must have been re­ceived at Dale­main. For more in­for­ma­tion and to plan your visit or com­pe­ti­tion en­try, visit www.mar­maladeawards.co.uk
