Winners at the Irish Food Awards - Blas na hEireann 2011

The annual Blas na hEireann/National Irish Food Awards celebrate and reward the very best of Irish produce, and the passionate, driven individuals behind it.


All Irish Food companies, from North and South of the island of Ireland, are invited to submit food products that are commercially available to the public in at least three commercial outlets, including Market stalls.


Held as part of the annual Dingle Peninsula Food & Wine Festival, the winners of the 2011 were announced on this evening. The official presentation and awards ceremony by Ross Golden-Bannon, Peter Ward, Birgitta Hedin-Curtin and Martin Shanahan was attended by retail buyers, journalists and chefs as well as local visitors to the festival.


This is a quick List of all the Winners at the Blas na hEireann Awards 2011 which I put together through thanks to the on-the-spot reporting of Artisan Food Brand Master Keith Bohanna via his Twitter posts.

For the Complete Results they have been just published here on the Blas na hEireann website

On a personal note, I think all major events like this should have their own Social Media station at their event, to help interested parties (like me, that couldn't make it to the event) keep up-to-date with the details & results via Twitter & Facebook.
