Scottish smokery lands Golden Fork with hot Kiln Roasted Salmon
Golden Fork from Scotland announced
Celebrating the very best in food and drink, Great Taste, the world’s most coveted food awards, has reached its grand finale for 2018. The Great Taste Golden Fork for the best food or drink from Scotland was presented to The Argyll Smokery from Dunoon for its Kiln Roasted Salmon. “Melting and moreish, meaty and succulent”, this “well handled” salmon is cured and smoked over oak, giving it a “lovely aroma, gentle smoke and sublime texture”.
Out of a record breaking 12,634 products entered into Great Taste 2018, the ‘outstanding’ Kiln Roasted Salmon, which is sourced off the remote West Highlands, was celebrated as the best tasting product in its region at the Great Taste Golden Fork Dinner held on Sunday 2 September at the InterContinental Park Lane Hotel, London, where over 350 guests from the world of fine food gathered to hear the results of many months of rigorous judging.
