West Cork artisan food company scoops prestigious Great Taste Award
Ummera Smoked Products was a recent recipient of a 3 star gold medal award at the 2010 Great Taste Awards in London, the Oscars of the Food World. The award for its Ummera Smoked Silver Hill Duck Breast is the latest in a long line of Great Taste Award medals to be won by the Timoleague, Co. Cork family owned business.
Expressing delight at Ummera’s win, Anthony Creswell, who owns the business said “We’ve worked very hard over the last number of months to get ready to relaunch, but the most important thing for us was to get the taste right. It’s wonderful that the Great Taste judges think our smoked duck is as good as we do”.
Ummera Smoked Products, whose range includes Smoked Organic Salmon, Organic Gravadlax, Smoked Chicken and Smoked Dry Cured Bacon Rashers, sources its duck from Silver Hill Foods in Co. Monaghan, who themselves have won 7 Great Taste Awards in the last two years.
Alongside his superlative smoked salmon, Anthony also cures his own Gravadlax, from a special recipe, which includes salt, sugar and fresh dill. This traditional Swedish dish relies on the best quality fish, which have natural fat content. Ummera’s award winning smoked silver eel, only produced seasonally, is another fabulous achievement. And Anthony has re-introduced his father’s original smoked chicken, sourcing his birds locally to produce wonderfully succulent and meaty crown breast joints and individual drumsticks that have moreish smokey savouriness.
Ummera Smoked Products are perfect for the all important nutritious school lunches whether it be a wholemeal sandwich or cold salad due to their natural ingredients.
Ummera Smokehouse is one of this country’s most famous and prestigious artisan productions, and thanks to the forward thinking, eco friendly attitude of the man at its helm, the Ummera philosophy surely leads the way for others to follow.
Ummera Smoked Products are already available in the finest food stores and delicatessens throughout Ireland, such as the Avoca shops and Fallon & Byrne in Dublin, and Ardkeen Quality Food Store in Waterford.
