Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

TV Chef/presenter, food Archaeologist, author and broadcaster Alan Coxon has been awarded the “Maitrise Escoffier” award by the Conseil Culinaire Francais.

The award on recommendation of the President of the Association Culinaire is in recognition for achievements within the culinary profession.

Alan who received notice of the award in the post says:

It was a complete surprise and a great honour and privilege to have been recognised by such a leading culinary body and by my peers

FoodAdo could not resist form interviewing him and discover a bit more.

Who was the first person you told the good news?

My Wife and Children

Why do you think they picked your products?

I have been a member of the Association Culinaire for many years and this surprise award was a nomination by my peers in recognition for the work I have done in the food industry and possibly the fact that I have created a unique ingredient.

What is your secret?

If I told you it would no longer be a secret!! Joking aside, the real secret is  hard work , sheer determination and a passion to see  quality products enjoyed by people that love  quality food and ingredients.

Alan has worked in a variety of hotels and restaurants around the world including the Michelin star restaurant the “Foie Gras”, the Loews hotel Monte Carlo, his own restaurant in the Isle of Man, and the largest 4 star hotel in Paris leading a brigade of 65 International chefs.

Alan has also developed a global following for his TV presentations such as Ever Wondered about food for BBC2, Coxon`s Royal Feast for BBC Worldwide to 4 years as guest presenter on the Gloria Hunniford Open house and 4 years on the UK TV food networks.

Alan has written 3 books to date and has also created a unique range of multi award winning food products, including a 15th century Mediaeval Old English “Ale-Gar”, a Roman period Vinaigre and an Ancient Greek Vinaigre.

All three products are now being exported and to 9 countries around the globe.

Alan and his time machine for foodies

Alan Coxon is a creative cook and a food archaeologist who explores food with a unique approach.

Vinegar is not just vinegar to him, there is so much more to discover.

“I was always been fascinated with the history of food, the origination of our everyday ingredients ,and so I decided to study and investigate the foods of  Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire and  Mediaeval old England.

I have been working on an historic food range created from recipes and theories of centuries past.  I have explored the flavours and ingredients that once adorned tables of the mighty Roman Emperors, Medieval Knights and Ancient Greek temples.

Each period product holds unique combinations of flavours that will enhance modern cooking make for interesting discussion in the kitchen at the dinner table or around the barbecue, they also make for stunning and innovative quality gifts for any foodie, chef or cook!”

Alan and his beautiful vinegars won many awards including 5 gold “Innovation” and “Superior Quality Taste Awards”.

The FoodAdo Team is very happy to have him coming on board!

Kate Gover at Lahloo Tea wins Taste Award 2010

Lahloo is celebrating after winning four prizes at the sixteenth annual national Great Taste Awards this week.

Lahloo won GREAT TASTE GOLD for 4 of their beautiful loose leaf teas.

“We got the exciting phone call the other day and have been dancing around the room since with huge grins on our faces!”

Lahloo is specialized in artisan single estate and custom-blended loose leaf tea with flavour and provenance.

“I know how fantastic Lahloo Tea is but to stand out among what is really talented competition after just 18 months and receive these awards is a great achievement. It gives me confidence that Lahloo is heading in the right direction.”

This is quite an achievement for such a young company especially as Kate Gover used to hate tea with a passion!!
