Great Taste Gold Star Award winnersSophie
Here at the Organic Hamper Company, we are always looking to support local small organic producers. We also design our hampers and gift bags around products that aren’t widely available. This month I was thrilled to learn that two products we use have been awarded Great Taste Gold Star Awards. The awards for the Rogan Josh Sauce and the Lime and Lemon Curd made the Real Organic Food Company the only organic manufacturer to win a Great Taste Gold Star award in both the sauces and the curd categories. Congratulations to them on achieving such success.
The Lime and Lemon Curd is a tangy, sweet, deliciously oozy loveliness of a spread. Sharp from the lime, yet sweet and decadent and ever so moreish. Unlike traditional lemon curd it is not quite so sweet and you can’t help but go back for seconds. I particularly enjoy it on vanilla ice-cream or in a Victoria sponge. In fact, I struggle to find anyone who doesn’t like it!
The Rogan Josh Sauce is also a delight. Heady with spices, it gives depth of flavour without too much heat so it’s suitable for all the family. It’s a particular favourite of mine at Christmas for making the Turkey curry. And, like all of The Real Organic Food Company’s products, it is vegetarian. I would definitely recommend the Aubergine Rogan Josh recipe on the label.
The Real Organic Food Company is based in Oxfordshire just a short hop from OHC HQ. I was lucky enough to meet David Morgan, the founder, last year for a tasting of his range. David was inspired to start the company because he wanted to give high quality organic food to his family. He also wanted to minimise the additives found in some of the mass produced ranges on the market. His dedication to taste and flavour, along with a commitment to using no artificial preservatives, makes him a firm favourite at OHC HQ. These awards are very well deserved – exceptional products from an exceptional company.
