Blas na hEireann deadline this week
If you are a food producer, make sure you have your entry in for this year’s Blas na hEireann, the National Irish Food Awards. The deadline is this Friday, 27 July, and – especially relevant if you sell your products at farmers’ markets – they have just launched a new Best In Market Award to celebrate small producers.
From the press release:
Due to the high level of entries from small artisan producers this
year, the Blas na hEireann, National Irish Food Awards, is delighted to
announce a major new prize in this year’s Competition. Called ‘Best In
Market’, this Award will celebrate those local food heroes who sell at
farmers’ markets, often operating out of their own kitchens.
This Award is also created to recognise the achievements of two former
Supreme Champion winners, Una’s Pies and Flynn’s Kitchen, both regulars
on the Cork farmer’s market circuit, who have gone from strength to
strength as a result of taking the top accolade at the Blas Awards.

The deadline for entry to this year’s competition is 27 July 2012. The
final judging and presentation of these Awards will take place at the
Dingle Peninsula Food Festival on the 4 -7 October 2012.
