Fortnum & Mason is calling all budding marmalade makers worldwide to submit their zesty creations to the 2021 Dalemain Awards for a chance to have their own produce stocked on Fortnum’s shelves. The winner of the ‘homemade’ category will be announced on 14th of March and will see their marmalade stocked in-store and online for a whole year.
Fortnum’s are proud sponsors of the homemade category of the Dalemain Awards. The annual competition calls on amateur marmalade makers, whether they’re a complete novice, or a hardened veteran, to get busy creating their own unique preserves. This year, with people spending more time than ever taking up new hobbies at home, it’s expected that it will be a bumper year for new orange-based creations.
Having sold marmalade in jars since 1878, and currently stocking a range of 45 different variations, Fortnum’s has a strong claim to being the home of marmalade. Participants searching for inspiration may look to Fortnum & Mason’s extensive collection. The newest, Chios Mandarin Marmalade is cultivated from a special type of mandarin, grown on the Northern Aegean Greek island of Chios. It creates a uniquely zesty marmalade that perfectly balances the sweet, sharp and bitter notes.
To enter, simply submit your marmalade to Dalemain direct via their website.
Alternatively, if you live locally, drop your marmalade off at Fortnum’s Piccadilly, St. Pancras, or K11 Musea (Hong Kong) stores in exchange for a free jar of Fortnum’s marmalade - UK entrants must be submitted by 5th February 2021 and Hong Kong entrants by 24th January 2021.
