The Flavours of Herefordshire Awards, celebrating the very best of food and drink in the county, is well under way in time for this year’s Flavours of Herefordshire Festival. Excitement is growing as for the first time in its 7 years the city centre will be hosting the Festival on 27th & 28th October.
The ‘Best Steak’ category, open to any local business that sells, produces or rears the best rib-eye steak in the county was judged on Friday 1st June.
Judges were tasked with blind tasting Herefordshire’s finest ribeye steak at Herefordshire College of Technology’s Cider Orchard training kitchen and restaurant.
Shortlisted Flavours of Herefordshire ‘Best Steak’ entries will be listed under Flavours of Herefordshire Awards on www.visitherefordshire.co.uk/members
The ‘Young Chef in Education’ and the ‘Young Chef in Industry’ categories are the next opportunity to showcase the great young talent from the county and entry closes on Tuesday 12th June.
Thanks to the support of Axon Enterprises along with Electrolux Foodservice, this year there is an amazing opportunity for one overall and outstanding young chef to win the top ‘money can’t buy’ prize – an all-expenses paid hotel and travel trip for two to the International Milan Host event held in Italy in 2013.
“This prize is a fantastic opportunity for the winner to visit the most prestigious catering equipment exhibition in Europe. Axon hopes this prize will provide a springboard for upcoming talent in the industry and education sector, and to showcase their flair and passion with recognition rewarded in this way.” says Paul Emberton of Axon Enterprises based in Hereford.
Working in partnership with Herefordshire College of Technology, Visit Herefordshire hopes this will encourage more young people to choose this career path at a time when opportunities seem few and far between elsewhere. HCT offers both full-time and apprenticeship provision in Hospitality and Catering, giving learners real routes in to this vibrant industry.
