Here are our winners in 2012 -
Smoked Haddock 2 STAR GOLD
Smoked Kippers 1 STAR GOLD
We are celebrating after winning another two awards for our luxury smoked fish at the UK's most renowned Food Awards, the Great Taste Awards 2012. The company's founder - Rob Wing - and the team are delighted to be among the country's most highly rated food producers.
Every year, GTAs attracts thousands of entries of British food and drink products. Winners are announced after all entries have been
blind-tasted, tested and discussed during two months of intense judging by hundred of judges, comprising food writers, chefs, deli and farm shop owners, food producers and buyers.
Due to the high number of products entered and the number of producers taking part, it is unusual for one producer to receive multiple awards.
Once you have tried our own home smoked seafood we are sure you will be coming back for more!
Commenting on the success Rob Wing said "We have been selling fresh fish for more than 30 years. I've been a fisherman, worked in fish processing, and now I sell some of the best Cornish smoked fish all over the UK."
Great Taste is the biggest independent benchmarking scheme for local, regional and speciality foods in Britain. Over 350 professional foodies are brought together each year to take part in 45 days of judging, deciding which foods deserve one-star, two-star or the ultimate three-star awards.
Judges this year included Masterchef winner and restaurateur Mat Follas, restaurant critic and Masterchef judge Charles Campion, food writers Lucas Hollweg and Xanthe Clay and over 300 food buyers from leading food halls, delicatessens and farm shops, including Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason.
After much competition for the coveted Gold Star Rating, The Cornish Fishmonger scooped two Gold awards. Two Gold stars for our silky smoked haddock and one Gold star for our smoked kippers, both are smoked in our own kiln with Rob Wings secret cure. This adds to the already five golds they won in 2010 for other fish products.
Judges provided feedback on all of the products samples. They were very complimentary about The Cornish Fishmonger's smoked fish, saying: "good depth of flavour but not over smoked, strong and pleasant - subtle oak notes. Delicious!"
We are proud to offer a full range of award-winning smoked fish and shellfish to all fish lovers in the UK.
