Thomas of Helmsley Butchers and Delicatessen, located at Market Place, Helmsley – and part of the Thomas the Baker family bakery firm – was award two golds for its Cumberland sausage and one for its mincemeat – with one of the judges describing its sausage as “one of the best tasted”.
John Thomas, managing director of Thomas the Bakers, said:
“It’s wonderful to think that our sausage was one of the best they’d tasted!”
“We only put the finest ingredients into our Cumberlands, and this goes for all our products, and it’s good to see the judges recognised this.”
As the world’s largest and most rigorous food awards scheme, Great Taste involved more than 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting.
