Cannon & Cannon to hold cured meat awards at Borough Market
Specialist wholesaler and retailer Cannon & Cannon, based at London’s Borough Market, plans to stage the first British cured meat awards as part of its British charcuterie festival at the market next year.
Founder Sean Cannon told FFD he had secured the market’s new event space in Jubilee Place – formerly a car park – for the ticketed event on 27th May, the late spring bank holiday Sunday.
He expects to sell up to 350 tickets each for two sessions – day-time and evening – featuring
talks and demos by well-knows chefs, charcutiers and home-curing experts alongside tastings, brewery bars, street food, a charcuterie market and live music.
Judging of the cured meat awards will take place throughout the day, culimating in an awards ceremony in the evening session.
Cannon told FFD he had identified more than 180 British charcuterie producers that could
potentially enter the awards, ranging from commercial operators selling into the trade to
chefs making cured meats for their own restaurants and bars.
Producers can email firstname.lastname@example.org to register interest in applying.
