Short List Announced for ’09 Food Awards

The short list has been announced for the 2009 Blas na hEireann awards, and you can see the three finalists for each category here.

It was very competitive again this year, with nearly 800 entries.

The winners will be announced on Friday, but everyone on the shortlist is guaranteed a medal.

Congrats to all of them!

(In case you’re wondering, we didn’t submit anything because we’re one of the organisers of the awards.)

    We actually don’t nominate products – companies nominate their own, and you have to sign up to be involved. I wanted to do an on-line food awards though, with people nominating and voting on their favourite products. Maybe for next year!

    I am delighted to see that The Foods of Athenry have been nominated again this year for their Christmas Pudding. I bought one last year and it was fab…I will be buying some as christmas gifts this year. I am sure that their other nominations are up to the same great taste.
