BritishCharcuterie.live has announced that Door4Montpellier of Montpellier Walk, Cheltenham is the first monthly winner in a new nationwide competition to find Britain’s Best Charcuterie Boards, sponsored by Tracklements.
The family-run cocktail bar is well-loved for its cheese and charcuterie boards, and the winning April board is a sensational combination of British sourced meats turned into Charcuterie by local producers The Cotswold Curer and Native Breeds Charcuterie.
Both these charcuterie producers have entered BritishCharcuterie.live’s British Charcuterie Awards, which are being held in August this year.
Door4Montpellier’s board received plenty of likes in the open contest on Instagram @britainsbestcharcuterieboards, #BBCharcuterieBoards. It was chosen from nearly 20 entries by the judges who include Guy Tullberg MD of Tracklements, Henrietta Green co-founder of BritishCharcuterie.live and Josh Barrie journalist & Charcuterie Lover.
Door4Montpellier will receive a selection of Tracklements retail jars worth £50, a pair of tickets to BBC Countryfile Live worth £60, and a certificate from BritishCharcuterie.live. The nominator who posted the winning board will receive six jars of Tracklements chutneys & preserves and an apron worth £40, plus two tickets to BBC Countryfile Live worth £60
The search is still on for the most appealing boards from all over the UK. The monthly contest will run until mid-July, so there are three more opportunities for nominations from the public or the restaurants, bars, pubs, cafes and delis themselves who serve a really fabulous selection of charcuterie, of whatever origin. A national winner will be selected from the monthly winners by public vote taking place in the British Charcuterie Tent at BBC Countryfile Live at Blenheim Palace from August 2nd – 5th.
How to enter. Every Charcuterie Board is eligible provided it is served in a restaurant, bar pub, café and deli. Entry is simple, just take a picture of a Charcuterie Board and post it on your Instagram page, tag it with @britainsbestcharcuterieboards or #bbcharcuterieboards and spread the word!
