Golden Fork from Northern Ireland announced
Celebrating the very best in food and drink, Great Taste, the world’s most coveted blind-tasted food awards, has reached its grand finale for 2016. The Great Taste Golden Fork for the best food or drink in Northern Ireland was presented to Hannan Meats from Armagh, Northern Ireland, for its Glenarm Shorthorn 4 Rib Roast, a product that has also been named Great Taste Supreme Champion 2016 (see separate press release). The judges heaped praise upon this exceptional product, which is dry-aged in a Himalayan Salt Chamber for a minimum of 28 days. The panel really were bowled over and couldn’t “believe that beef could taste so good”, saying that “to have the sweet, juicy and oozy flavour travelling through the meat and fat was commendable”. This “beef of joy” was a real hit with the entire panel, with one judge wanting to “be covered in the fat, sit next to a fire and then pick the cooked crust off themselves”.
