Back from 40 degrees in Spain on Monday afternoon to be welcomed by 36 hours continuous rain!
Busy catching up on all that happened after ten days out of contact with the world; it’s an experience doing without all the mod cons of today’s world, but is a great relief to know that emails, mobiles, blogs, and newspapers are not essential to life!
Good news came through the mail with results from the Great Taste Awards in the UK; and I was pipped to the post in blogging this news by Ivan McCutcheon on his blog Food Culture West Cork and he had a photo taken at the recent Taste of Cork Festival!
I have just returned from a delivery to Scally’s Supervalu in Clonakility where I grabbed a copy of the current edition of the West Cork People, from Jean Farrelly, Joint Editor, as she was making a delivery there.
Lo and behold we were on the front page!
Jean told me that my Press Release arrived with her at 2.30pm yesterday and the edition was scheduled for printing at 3.00pm!
I think this is the first time that Ummera has been responsible for “Stop the Press”!
The actual Press Release can be downloaded as a pdf file here.
I almost forgot what the Awards were for! Ummera Smoked Chicken and Ummera Organic Gravadlax. This now means that all our products have received awards at the Great Taste Awards over the last three years!
And Spain was fantastic!!
