Earlier this month innovative new wild food brand Wild Cornwall took the Taste of The West awards by storm as they were crowned champion in class for their latest hero product, Rose and Strawberry Red Wine Vinegar.
Born out of a passion for foraging and introducing people to unusual, heritage plants, Wild Cornwall is on a mission to prove that many of the ingredients commonly imported to the UK are surplus to requirement if you look a little deeper into the hedgerows.
With only 6 months trading under its belt Wild Cornwall is the new kid on the block that is charging to the top of the pile. Distinguishing itself from other brands with new and exciting flavour combinations the packaging is chic, sophisticated and the kind of thing you want sitting on your kitchen table.
Wild Cornwall entered four products into the Taste of the West Awards this year and were judged Gold and Silver for every entry, however it was the Rose and Strawberry Red Wine Vinegar that stole the show.
Described as, “Unusual, but an incredibly delicious accompaniment, it’s delicate and versatile with a clear ingredient shining through…it’s also the prettiest colour of pink”.
A full Champion Feature is soon to be published by Taste of The West.
“We are delighted to be given this recognition so soon after launching” Says Anna Pardoe, managing director. “Its wonderful that so many other people are behind us and our brand. Our only regret is not entering more products for judging!”
Wild Cornwall will be entering many more from their range to The Good Food Awards in January and are hoping to pick up a few more prizes along the way! The Wild Cornwall range includes sauces, oils, vinegars and condiments as well as liqueurs, herbal infusions and seasonings all curated from wild and foraged ingredients on the Cornish Roseland.
Based on the picturesque Trelonk Farm, Wild Cornwall has access to 160 acres of biodiverse landscape to forage and farm. Growing seed oil crops using the best and newest of farming technologies and using them not only for award winning food products but combining them with other natural, Cornish ingredients such as wildflowers and honey for a luxurious skincare range.
