Producers Bursary Award Winners 2015/2016

After a lovely few months off with my new daughter Lottie I’m slowly getting back into the wonderful world of food… I have to admit, my culinary escapades have been few and far between! However, over the past few months I’ve been preparing for the BBC Good Food Shows that are currently taking place in Glasgow (last week), London (on now!) and in Birmingham on the 26th November – they are as incredible as always!

I’ve discovered some amazing small producers while managing the BBC Good Food Show Producers Bursary Awards this year – take a peek at pictures from the tasting day and see all the 2015/2016 winners below:
