Tastes of Lincolnshire bid to make Lincolnshire number one county for food

FOOD lovers are being asked to help put county produce in the national spotlight.

Tastes of Lincolnshire is urging people to back the county in a bid to make it Britain’s top food spot.

Residents can show their support online at www.lovebritishfood.co.uk/votefoodspot – voting takes just seconds.

Lincolnshire is narrowly behind Cornwall at the moment, but a last minute surge could see the county take the crown before voting ends on September 11.

Mary Powell of Tastes of Lincolnshire said: “We need people to get online and get voting. We know Lincolnshire is the top food spot in the UK, and now’s our chance to get this recognised nationally.

“We have the freshest and tastiest local food – premium sausages, delectable pork pies and the famous Lincolnshire plumbread, best enjoyed with Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese. Add to that fields full of the finest vegetables, and what more could a food lover ask for?”

The competition has been created to promote British Food Fortnight’s 10th Anniversary. The winner will be announced at the start of this year’s British Food Fortnight (September 17 to October 2).
