Eight top awards for Burnham-On-Sea cafe owner
A Burnham-On-Sea cafe owner is celebrating after winning no fewer than EIGHT awards at one of the West Country’s most keenly contested shows.
Joan White and her daughter Sarah, who run Tickle Your Taste Buds in the High Street, returned from the 2005 Royal Bath and West Show with an armful of rosettes after impressing the judges in the food competitions.
Their haul includes three sought-after first place awards and five for third places.
Joan’s roast carvery meals are renowned across Burnham and Somerset – and this was recognised when her vegetrian roast swept away with a first place in the mixed savoury vegetarian class.
“This was our best ever performance at the Bath and West,” said Joan. “We’ve entered several years before but it’s the first time we’ve picked up rosettes for first places. We’re delighted.”
The pair’s two other first places came in the cake-making categories. Their rosettes now take pride of place in the cafe’s awards cabinet, pictured above.
