October 5, 2014 by 250 Beers
Last Monday, 29th September I announced a competition on 250beers.com – I was awarding a Good Food & Wine Show double pass to five winners.
I asked entrants to email me in more than 40 words (but less than 50) a response to this question: “What do you love about good food?”
The response was fantastic as was the quality of all of the submissions however there can only be five winners. It was a tough call but here are the winning entries:
Good food – a fundamental necessity for life and hedonism! Drinks are too wet without it, beer is too potent without and does anything exist that cannot be enhanced by the consuming of food before, during or after? Best food ever – salt ‘n’ vinegar crisps!
Sy & Lizzy
What I LOVE about good food is that I can bake delicious sweet treats and bring them in to the office to share around with my extremely hard-working, handsome, damn sexy colleagues who deserve the sugary goodness of a baked good made with love.
Love of flavour doesn’t begin or end at beer, great food and beer go hand in hand and can lead us to new and exciting places. Each can be intoxicating, but together they transcend what either can achieve alone.Wine is pretty good, too.
Good food, wine and beer,
Conversation, frivolity and cheer!
Basting and tasting,
Good times aren’t wasting.
Barley wine, cheese and rosé,
Muscat, tokay and Beaujolais!
When the sauce thickens,
I’ll serve you Kölsch with your chicken.
I love it all,
Bring on a Good Food & Wine Show stall crawl!
‘Good food’ for me is more than about sustenance, it’s about health, satisfaction and delight. It has that magical effect in making a simple dinner or big parties bring relationships closer. It’s a great conversation starter and through good food we socialise, indulge and celebrate. What’s not to love?
Thank you to everybody that entered and took part. All five winners have been notified by email and will receive their prize within the next week or so.
