KK Fine Foods Ltd has continued its winning streak at the BFFF by taking home an impressive five awards this year, including three Gold awards!
KK Fine Foods’ Lamb, Apricot & Chickpea Tagine was awarded Gold in the ‘Best New Ethnic or World Cuisine Product’ category. Our experienced NPD team are renowned for their innovative world flavours and worked closely with the team at Giraffe World Kitchen to create this delicious and authentic recipe. Inspired by the trending flavours of the Middle East, the tagine includes traditional harissa paste for a spicy kick and sweet apricots to balance the flavours. The lamb has been slow cooked for hours using sous vide technology to ensure it’s perfectly tender and succulent, helping to secure the Gold award.
KK’s second Gold of the evening was in the ‘Best New Starter Product’ category for our Mac Cheese Bites. Created in partnership with JD Wetherpsoon, this indulgent bite has a centre of macaroni pasta in a rich vintage cheddar, Scottish cheddar and mozzarella cheese sauce all coated in a crispy panko style crumb.
Inspired by the huge trend of plant based eating, KK worked alongside JD Wetherspoon for another award winning dish; Sweet Potato, Chickpea & Spinach Curry. This delicious curry is not only vegan but also gluten free, making it a perfect free from option for JD Wetherpsoon diners. The flavours in this curry have been inspired by the modern Indian street food trend that is sweeping the UK and secured the dish a Silver award for ‘Best New Ethnic or World Cuisine Product’.
KK would also like to congratulate Brakes on winning Gold in the ‘Best New Free From, Meat Free, Vegetable Based Product’ category for their Beetroot, Red Pepper and Quinoa Burger which KK Fine Foods in proud to manufacture.
Our final award of the evening was Bronze in the ‘Best New Meat Product’ category for our Beef Lasagne, a classic recipe that has been elevated with smoked streaky bacon and Chianti wine for a rich and flavoursome lasagne.
Managing Director, Samir Edwards said “We had an amazing evening and these awards demonstrate our commitment as a business to continually deliver high quality, innovative and most importantly, great tasting products to our valued customers.
