Focaccia per tutti - winner FFFood Awards 14 with Antony Worrall Thompson

FreeFrom Food Award winners 2014 announced

The winners of the FreeFrom Food Awards were announced at the Royal College of Physicians in Regents Park on 25 March and presented by restaurateur Antony Worrall Thompson.

Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, director of the awards, commented on the entries: “So many good products, and right across the food spectrum from staples to exotica. From free-from supermarket bread to raw maca powder and coconut frozen yogurt to gluten-free beer brewed from sorghum – there are few areas of the food world where free-from has not now penetrated.”

The awards, run by the FreeFrom Matters team, are now in their seventh year and are judged by a panel including manufactures, chefs, cookery writers, dietitians, nutritionists, coeliacs and allergy sufferers. Below is a complete list of the award-winners as well as those highly commended and commended.
