And the Winner is…
The Taste Cheshire Awards celebrate the true taste of Cheshire, awarding those establishments that are at the top of their game. Back in February Andrew, our Master Butcher was invited to enter his sausages into the Chester Food and Drink Sausage Competition – could he have the best sausage in Cheshire? We were eager to find out.
As well as the sausage competition, a record number of over 30,000 public votes were cast during the voting stage in various categories such as Excellence in Customer Service, Best Newcomer, Best Cafe and so on. The top 3 or 4 in each category then received a visit from a mystery judge.
Prior to the awards we were delighted to hear that we had been shortlisted in two categories; Best Local Produce Shop and Best Pork Sausage! On March 30th a handful of our Hollies team put on their glad rags and headed off to Chester Racecourse for the results. We were THRILLED to get the Gold Award for Best Local Produce Shop and would like to thank all of our fabulous staff for their hard work and of course our lovely customers for all their support.
Whilst it turned out we didn’t have the best sausage in Cheshire this year, we were proud of our Butchery team for being in the top three of 38 sausage entrants!
Well done to all of the nominees and winners in each category! If you want to look at the full rundown of all of the awards, click here.
