Following a record-breaking 12,772 entries judged over 75 days, Great Taste, the world’s most revered food and drink awards, has reached its grand finale for 2019. The Great Taste Golden Fork for the best food or drink from East Anglia was presented to Hadley’s Dairy from Colchester for its Hadley’s Burnt Honey Ice Cream. Made using Lavenham Honey from the dairy’s own village, which is caramelised and combined with an ice cream custard, this product was described by the judges as “happiness in a bowl”, delivering “a little scoop with such depth”.


Created by Jane Hadley, who has been making ice cream for 19 years, Hadley’s Burnt Honey Ice Cream impressed at every stage of the blind-tasted judging process. Rising to the top among hundreds of other entries from East Anglia, the soft scoop ice cream was celebrated as the best tasting product in its region at the Great Taste Golden Fork Dinner held on Sunday 1 September at the InterContinental Park Lane Hotel, London, where over 350 guests from the world of fine food gathered to discover this year’s stars of food and drink.
