IN recent years we have all become increasingly aware of where our food comes from and how it is made. Many of us will share the passion of our Essex producers and try to use local, seasonal ingredients in our meals whenever possible.
Producers are at the heart of every community and are truly deserving of the recognition winning an award such as these would bring to them.
We know Essex has fantastic produce – please take the time to nominate your favourites and visit the awards web site to cast your vote at www.thisistotalessex.co.uk/foodanddrinkawards
