Robert Stordy, Associate Lecturer in Culinary Arts at the University of Derby, Buxton Campus, and Fellow of the World Master Chefs Society, won three gold and two silver awards for his marmalade entries in The 15th World’s Marmalade Awards. His gold-winning marmalades were; Clear Seville, Seville with Grand Marnier and Seville with winter spices. This year over 3,000 entries were received from 43 countries, including Japan, Lebanon, Canada, Brazil, Senegal and Australia.
The world’s premiere preserving awards were founded in 2005 by Jane Hasell-McCosh with the initial idea of preserving, growing and widening one of the most British of customs – making marmalade, but have gone on to generate a huge following, inspiring people from all over the world to get
involved. The Homemade Marmalade Awards are a competition for amateur marmalade makers which aims to find the very best homemade marmalade maker in the world, while raising money for Hospice at Home along the way!
