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 Charcuterie Product of the Year was presented to Capreolus Fine Foods from Dorset for its Guanciale, a “perfect example” of cured and air-dried pork cheek, with “layers and layers of porky and herby flavour”.


With its “balanced sweet and salty flavours”, the Guanciale impressed at every stage of the blind-tasted judging process. Rising to the top among charcuterie entries from the UK and beyond, the “melt in the mouth” Guanciale was celebrated as the best in its class 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.
