Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards 2019
Following an awards ceremony at Cheltenham Racecourse on Monday 8th July 2019, Cotswolds based Ross & Ross Gifts have won the Food Product of the Year in the Cotswold Life Food & Drink Awards. Known for their original food products and gifts, they can now add another prestigious award to their kitchen shelf.
Speaking of the news, co-founder Ross Bearman said:
“We are so proud to collect this award for the second time. Small companies like us work hard to bring new product ranges to market so it feels very rewarding to hear such positive feedback and appreciation. We have seen lots of interest in our Roast Range and are already looking forward to the 2019 festive season.”
They have sourced the finest Extra Virgin cold-pressed Cotswolds rapeseed oil (less than five miles from HQ) and infused it with smoke, rosemary and garlic. This gloriously golden oil has a really high smoke point meaning you get THE crispiest Roasties (which is the whole point right?). Then you get the umami background notes from the smoke, and finished with classic hints of fragrant garlic and rosemary. Taking the humble potato to the next level.
The Cotswold Life Judges said
“The Roast Potato oil's smoke, garlic and rosemary infusion creates a distinct taste when roasting the potatoes. It is made by an innovative company, looking to deliver products that everyone can enjoy”They have previous form, winning Gift of the Year in 2018 for their creative Christmas Roast Dinner Box which includes the Roast Potato Oil, a fragrant Brussels Sprout Dust, a sweet and spicy Pigs in Blankets Dust and a unique Roast Turkey Rub.
