The 2018 Great Taste Golden Fork for the best food or drink from
Ireland was presented to Musgrave Retail Partners Ireland from
Cork for its Signature Tastes Smoked Rack of Bacon. Out of a
record-breaking 12,634 products entered into Great Taste 2018, the
"exceptionally juicy" Signature Tastes Smoked Rack of Bacon was
celebrated as the best-tasting product in its region. Butchered, cured
and traditionally smoked with beechwood, this French-trimmed rack of
Hampshire bacon won the Great Taste judges over with its "delicious
melt-in-the-mouth fat, well-balanced sweetness, salt and smokiness".
The Golden Fork from Ireland was sponsored by Bord Bia (the Irish
Food Board). Also nominated this year was a Great Taste Three-star
winning Boyne Valley Bán from Meath-based Boyne Valley Farmhouse
Cheese and The Smokin' Butcher's Sweet Dry Cured Smoked Collar
Bacon, which is also produced in Meath.
