Stokes Real Tomato Ketchup has come first in a blind taste test on UKTV’s Market Kitchen programme.
Hosts Matthew Foot of the Guardian newspaper and Tom Parker Bowles were joined by Cyrus Todiwala, Proprietor and Executive Chef of London’s Café Spice Namaste, who has over the years picked up a number of prestigious awards including British Curry Awards Industry Personality of the Year 2007 and Best Indian Chef in the UK.
Tom Parker Bowles is best known as the son of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and is renowned as a food columnist with columns in Live Night and Day in The Mail on Sunday, and in Tatler. He is also the author of two books about food, E is for Eating: An Alphabet of Greed, and The Year of Eating Dangerously: A Global Adventure in Search of Culinary Extremes.
Matthew Fort has been the Food and Drink Editor at the Guardian since 1989. He has also written for Esquire, The Observer, Country Living, Decanter and Waitrose Food Illustrated. In 1992 he won the title of Glenfiddich Food Writer of the Year and, in 1993, Glenfiddich Restaurant Writer of the Year, as well as The Restaurateurs’ Association Food Writer of the Year. He was Glenfiddich Cookery Writer of the Year in 2005.
Despite some initial skepticism, the judges declared Stokes Real Tomato Ketchup the outright winner, overcoming even the ‘classic’ Heinz Tomato Ketchup and several other ‘gourmet’ ketchups.
