Ben Laws of Java took the honours with his Oak Roast Smoked Salmon Bagel.

Sponsor's Harvey & Brockless challenged competitors to create a sandwich incorporating their either Finest Pesto or Green Kraut Relish. Or both!

Finest Pesto

Not just your average run of the mill pesto, this Fresh Basil Pesto is created with a blend of Veronese basil, our Luca 100% Picual  Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 24 month Parmigiano-Reggiano, pine nuts and garlic. It combines everything you would want in an authentic fresh pesto; intensity, saltiness, texture and a herbaceous kick allowing it to stand up to any ingredient it is put with.

Green Kraut Relish

For the love of all things fermented our team have developed a sauerkraut relish cooked with cucumber, dill and cider vinegar to create the quintessential sweet, tart, textured relish that works fantastically in contrast to a range of ingredients from American hotdogs to Scandinavian salmon. Our Greenkraut relish is bang on trend and packs a fragrant punch.
