2022 Great Taste Award Winners

Posted on 10 August 2022

It is a great testament to the remarkable dedication and care of the teams in our kitchens that COOK meals and puddings won a whopping 20 Great Taste Awards in 2022. These awards are, essentially, the food Oscars, judged by a panel of food writers, critics, chefs and connoisseurs. This year, each of our three two-star winners came from our three kitchens: COOK Puddings in Somerset, and The COOK Kitchen and COOK Classics in Kent. All very satisfying!

The samples we send to the Great Taste Awards are not specially made or anything, so they’re a true representation of what you’ll find at a COOK shop. You can explore all the recent winners online here

A high point every year is reading through the comments from the judges. Here are just a few of them, along with our full list of 2022 winners…

“Wow this is superb! The sauce is so authentic and is citrus and herbaceous … It's fabulous.”

               On the Green Thai Chicken Curry (2 Star Award)

"You have raised the reputation of the Quiche.”

               On the Quiche Lorraine (2 Star Award)

 “The aromas are earthy and incredibly inviting.”

               On the Portobello Mushroom Risotto

“You have made such a delicious pudding that we want to eat it all. Which isn't great when you're judging so many products in a day … Wonderful stuff!”

               On the Sticky Toffee Pudding

“This is a homemade-feeling ready meal that delivers an enjoyable flavour of north Africa.”

               On the Moroccan Spiced Lamb Tagine

“The balance between wine, cream and thyme is perfect, very well executed...well done!”

               On the Chicken & Portobello Mushroom Pie

“We enjoyed the texture of the mushrooms and the tender onions, and the conjunction of flavours with the evident brandy proved pleasing, unchallenging yet characterful, with good seasoning.”

               On the Slow Cooked Rump Beef in Brandy

“A delightfully golden topped, generous tray of lasagne. We loved the lightness of the filling and topping, the overall balance with the tender pasta.”

               On the Roasted Vegetable Lasagne

“In the mouth, the raspberries sing as the absolute heroes. The chocolate sponge is the perfect consistency, with a light cream that pulls it all together tantalisingly.”

               On the Chocolate & Raspberry Roulade (2 Star Award)
