Irish winners at the Great Taste Awards

Congratulations to, who won three gongs at the recent Great Taste Awards in London with their chutneys and relishes. These awards are considered to be the Oscars of the foodie world, with 2021 producers entering almost 4800 products this year to be judged in a wide variety of categories.

The products – Hot Red Pepper Jam, Walnut and Fig Preserve, Wild Cranberry and Apple Relish – are made with Monaghan-based En-Place Foods, who also picked up an award for their for their Castleleslie Balsamic and Apple Reduction (haven’t tasted this – yet – but you have to try their Sherry and Fig Balsamic Reduction drizzled on roast duck or trickled over a warm goat’s cheese salad).

I’m a particular fan of the Wild Cranberry and Apple Relish, several jars of which we devoured around Christmas while on a black pudding bender. A special pack of the award-winning preserves are available as a special pack from and, while you’re there, you can also pick up a bottle of the Balsamic and Apple Reduction. Make sure you check out my favourite Argan oil and their dinky little tins of spices as well.
