It is getting closer to one of the greatest food weekends in Glasgow, the BBC Good Food Show. One of the perks of being one of the BBC Good Food Show Bloggers is that we get to help judge the Glasgow’s Best Deli competition. After lots of nominations, the shortlist has now been announced. They are:
Billingtons of Lenzie (Lenzie)
Celinos Deli (Alexandra Parade)
Peckhams (Various Glasgow locations)
Pane e Vino (Giffnock)
I.J Mellis (Great Western Road)
Roots and Fruits (Great Western Road)
Veldt Deli (Great Western Road)
Deli 1901 (Shawlands)
Lupe Pinto (Great Western Road)
Eusebi Deli (Shettleston Road)
Now for the fun part, the blogging community along with Katy Truss from Fabulous Food Finds will be visiting each shortlist candidate as mystery shoppers judging deli’s on variety and range of local and international produce, quality of facilities, customer service and atmosphere too.
The winner will then be announced and will win a free stand at the show this year to showcase their produce. It’s a great opportunity for a local deli who would otherwise be unable to afford a stand or even think about attending as an exhibitor, not to mention knowing that they are the best around vote for by the public!
Last year, Billingtons of Lenzie won the coveted prize and wowed the crowd with their deli. Will they win again? Only time will tell. They have some stiff competition this year!
