Free From Food Awards 2012- Judging getting nearer…

I may have previously mentioned that I have been invited to judge some of the categories in this year’s Free From Food Awards. Judging day is getting closer, my train ticket is booked and my tastebuds are at the ready.

I am sure all the entrants in all the categories will be fantastic, but I asked the Free From Food Awards HQ for an update on why this year’s awards are going to be the best EVER.

Michelle told me she is “very excited about the ready meals category which has always been a bit sparse in previous years but this year is bulging with entrants – real reflection of what is happening in the free from market.”

HQ are also very excited about the new raw food and superfood category. They have had some great entries, including  raw chocolate, mesquite flour, ‘flax dippers’, kale chips, beet juice and cheesecakes to name but a few. Interestingly traditional categories, such as bread, are now part of the main stream (a great reflection of the expanding free from market) so there are fewer entries this year – although, of course, cakes  are still holding up *cue collective sigh of relief from judges*

Still, the most popular judging category still remains the alcoholic variety, where judges can even sample some Free From nettle beer.

Can’t wait 🙂
