New Artisan Food Award Launches in Leicestershire

Nominations are being sought from producers in Leicestershire and the Midlands for a new artisan food award – the ‘Britannia Artisan Food Collection’.

The Collection is being curated by food and drink journalist and broadcaster Nigel Barden and will map the UK’s best produce and producers. After launching in Wales in November, moving north to Scotland in January, travelling to the north of England in February, and landing in the south last month.

Premium cooking appliance manufacturer Britannia is behind the launch of the Artisan Food Collection, a curated list of the best produce from around the British Isles.

From November 2019 to April 2020, Britannia will be seeking nominations from the public for their favourite food and drink from where they live. From jams and honeys to bread and charcuterie – and not forgetting local ales, ciders, and spirits – the best recommendations will be awarded a place on Britannia’s Artisan Food Collection map.

The map is being curated in association with well-known food and drink journalist and broadcaster Nigel Barden, a familiar voice on national radio in the UK since the 1990s. Nigel has spent almost 30 years championing artisan food and drink producers in the UK.

Each month, Britannia will be releasing a podcast in which Nigel discusses a region and its food and drink culture, and reviews three of the best nominations from within.

Britannia offers exceptional British design with an emphasis on craftsmanship and reliability. Its collection of cookers boast professional performance in the home, inviting every home chef to redefine their standards in range cooking.
