Three Irish restaurants have been nominated for the 2021 Great Taste Awards.

Great Taste is the largest and most trusted food and drink awards and is recognised by the food industry across the globe.

It offers a "unique benchmarking and product evaluation service, that encourages confidence and commercial success for quality food & drink businesses."

Each year the event is held in Harrogate at the Yorkshire Event Centre following the first day of the Fine Food Show North.

Out of 218 Great Taste 3-star award-winning products, just 14 will receive a Golden Fork Trophy and these will be announced ahead of the presentation of this year's biggest prize in food and drink - Great Taste Supreme Champion 2021.

Three Irish restaurants have been nominated for the win, and they are:

  • Carlingford Oyster Company in Carlingford - for its Great Taste 3-star award-winning Louet Feisser Select Carlingford Oysters
  • Greenbean Coffee Roasters in Dundalk - for its Great Taste 3-star award-winning Torero
  • Oliver Carty & Family in Athlone for its Great Taste 3-star award-winning SuperValu Signature Taste Irish Hampshire Easycarve ham fillet

Other regions included in the nominations are England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland.

While elsewhere around the world, nominees from the Czech Republic, and Norway are also in the running for the big prize of Great Taste Supreme Champion 2021.
