The Alberts Deli of Richmond is celebrating its nomination to win Deli of the Year 2011 – an award which is judged by some of the UK’s leading food experts. In each region of the UK a deli will be chosen to go forward to the Deli of the Year final, when delis will be visited by a mystery shopper, and the champion deli will be announced at the oscars of the fine food world in London in September.
Customers of The Alberts Deli are invited to pop into the shop to show their support and to visit www.delioftheyear.co.uk to add their vote.
The Alberts Deli is all about great food served by friendly staff, we pride ourselves on being a real part of the community, serving fresh homemade food and carefully selected goods. In the two and a half years that we have been open the deli has gone from strength to strength and we owe a lot to our loyal and supportive customers who continue to make our business such a pleasure and a success. We are now counting on our customers to show their support and vote for us to be The Deli of the Year 2011. Last year, which was the first year of the competition, thousands of people voted for delis up and down the UK, and the judges apparently had a hard task choosing the winning deli. 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 Richmond and the community of “The Alberts”
Deli of the Year is an idea created and organised by Olives Et Al, a food producer in Dorset, and supported by The Guild of Fine Food which represents the fine food sector. The competition is open to all, from the smallest post office with a tiny deli counter to high street delis and rural farm shops. The organisers believe that the deli culture is worth protecting and celebrating. Giles Henschel of Olives Et Al explains, “Last year thousands of people supported delis in their own high streets. The comments we received were amazing and we were truly staggered by the level of support for delis – we hope that we will have even more this year and that we find a deli worthy of the title Deli of the Year 2011.”
