Calling NI artisan food producers

Monday, May 29, 2017

A good friend of mine, Jamie Alexander, is the casting producer for a new Artisan food show to be shown on BBC 2. He has asked me to help find some NI producers to appear on the show. What an exciting opportunity for our NI foodie community- we have so many amazing local products that could feature!

Studio Lambert, the TV Company behind BAFTA-winning Gogglebox, Tattoo Fixers and Undercover Boss is making a new series about amateur and small-scale food & drink producers.
This is a fabulous opportunity for NI artisan food producers to showcase their product and compete against other similar products. They are particularly looking to speak to producers of baked goods, sweets, cheese, meat, fish, preserves/chutneys/condiments and drinks.

In each episode, four different food producers will be introduced and the audience will get a chance to know them, their product and how it is created. These four food producers are then brought together in beautiful local shop in Yorkshire where each product has its own “stand”. Each product will be tasted and critiqued by two expert judges as well as members of the local community. The winner is then picked based on the judge’s opinion and the product’s success and popularity with the locals. The programme promises to be a real celebration of food and local produce.

To be eligible to apply, you must be an amateur or small scale food producer. This means that the majority of your personal income must not derive from the product or cheffing.

If you are passionate about your produce, they want to hear from you!

Best of luck everyone.
