Drinks (alcohol) What Our Judges Thought... Seafood expertMitchTonks and two-Michelin star chef RaymondBlancwere blownaway by the quality of the products onoffer “Once again, it has been wonderful to be involved in the judging process for this year’s Great British Food Awards. Adam and I always enjoy receiving the selected products; it’s not always easy to find our winners but as we said in our feedback, the quality was really high and it's exciting that such good ingredients are being used – a lot of thought is going into achieving the best tastes. Well done to the winners” – Raymond Blanc, judging ‘Blue Cheese’ and ‘Savoury Bakes’ “It’s always a real privilege being asked to judge the Great British Food magazine awards and always very humbling. Seeing the quality and passion that goes into the products is really something else. For me these awards themselves are very important as they recognise the efforts made by British producers to innovate and develop our food culture, and knowledge and showcase the great work that they are doing. This year has been particularly challenging and I raise a glass to all those who’ve managed to survive and thrive” – Mitch Tonks, judging ‘ Gin’ and ‘Fish & Seafood’ 63
