Show support for local deli in national awards

WINSLOW’S Delicatessen Estrella celebrating its nomination for Deli Of The Year 2011 – and it wants your support to vote for it to win.

One deli from each region of the UK will be chosen to go forward to the Deli Of The Year final, when the shops will be visited by a mystery shopper.

And the champion deli will be announced at the ‘Oscars’ of the fine food world, the Fine Food Awards, in London in September.

“We would love to be a regional finalist and our team would love to win the title. It would really be something to celebrate for us and for Winslow,” said Helen Knight, who owns the shop with her husband John.

The contest, which is judged by some of the UK’s leading food experts, is open to all, from the post office with a tiny deli counter to high street delis and rural farm shops.

Customers are invited to pop into the shop to show their support and can vote online at
