It's all about the taste

Each year the Great Taste Awards grows a little larger. In 2014 10,000 products were tasted and assessed during nearly fifty tasting days. For the record this was the year of meat and a succession of magnificent ribs of beef, legs of lamb and joints of pork were brought out for the judges to ponder. The selection of beers has grown. The array of ciders is larger. As readers of these musings may have noticed that this was the year when the awards went to Belfast. At the end of the day devoted to selecting the Supreme Champion, forty of us went to dinner at the White Post.
