Critic for a day

Can you be the Greater Manchester food expert to judge our North West produce?

Published on March 18th 2010.


Critic for a day

Here's a nice notion from a press release. We've put in a picture of Gluttony to accompany this by the sixteenth century Flemish artist Breugel, which is a bit irrelevant but the editor loves the guy. Still it seems like a good gig, want to get involved?

'The search is on for a Greater Manchester food lover to become a food expert for a day by joining a panel of food specialists led by Northwest celebrity chef, Nigel Haworth, to help judge the Fine Food Northwest Awards 2010, tasting some of the finest foods the region has to offer.

The five food connoisseurs, who will be selected from a short-list by the Food Northwest team, will taste and judge in the region of 400 foods, marking them on their quality, taste, texture and appearance. They will find the 50 ‘best’ products to go forward for final judging in ten categories, the winners of which will receive their awards on the evening of 2 June, 2010.

'The Fine Food Northwest Awards 2010, organised by Food Northwest, recognise the best fine foods produced across the Northwest, from fresh fruit and vegetables to cakes and confectionery.

'Following the success of its ‘Search for a Foodie’ campaign, launched in 2009, Food Northwest is once again recruiting a Greater Manchester ‘foodie’ to join four other food enthusiasts from Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire and Merseyside, at a special judging event at Ewood Park in Blackburn on 2 June 2010.

'They will enjoy a day of tasting as part of a team of hand-picked judges, led by Nigel Haworth, chef patron of Northcote1 in Lancashire. Judges will include some of the region’s top chefs, as well as speciality food retailers, food journalists and supermarket buyers.

'The five food connoisseurs, who will be selected from a shortlist by the Food Northwest team, will taste and judge in the region of 400 foods, marking them on their quality, taste, texture and appearance. They will find the 50 ‘best’ products to go forward for final judging in ten categories, the winners of which will receive their awards on the evening of 2 June.

'Individuals over the age of 18, who are interested in joining the Fine Food Northwest Awards 2010 judging panel, can apply by completing an application form at www.foodnwawards.co.uk.

Entries must be submitted by April 7th, 2010.'
