Great Taste Golden Fork Award

We had a wonderful evening last week at the Great Taste Awards gala dinner. Not only did we get to taste a veritable feast of food and drink with ingredients provided by many of the Top 50 winners – including porcini arancini made with our mushrooms – but we managed to bag the Golden Fork prize for Best Ambient Product of the Year. We are of course utterly delighted and incredibly proud that one of our varieties of dried wild mushroom has received such a high accolade in the world of fine food. We’ve both just about come back down to earth and are looking forward to the new partnerships the award might help us forge, as well as this autumn’s forays, and happy days back out in the forests of West Sweden picking next year’s stock.
