The finalists for the BBC Food Programme, Food and farming Awards were announced today and it was great to see The Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company amongst them. They were one of the food companies I caught up with during my visit to the BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham last November. The company was a real worthy winner of a BBC Good Food Show Bursary and it is fantastic to see them as a finalist in the Best Food Market category of the Food and Farming Awards.
Their seaweed products are definitely in the deliciously different category. The company use foraged seashore ingredients found on the Pembrokeshire coastline to produce a range of seaweed based products, including Ship’s Biscuits, Lava Bread Pesto and seaweed flavoured butters. They also have 5 mobile beach huts and have cleverly combined foraged ingredients from the seashore to create a number of delicious signature local dishes, including, Salmon Laverbread and Cheddar Cheese, Bacon, Cockles and Laverbread and Sea Spaghetti Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
