The Real Cure, a charcuterie business based on the outskirts of Shaftsbury are delighted to announce that they have been awarded a further two Great Taste Awards for this year. Their Dorset Nduja and Fennel and White Pepper Salami each picked up two stars in this year’s awards, which means the company now holds Great Taste Awards across their entire range of cured meat.
Established in 2014 by James Smart, the Real Cure continues to use traditional smoking, curing and air drying techniques in all their products which are still produced at James’ family farm in Hartgrove. The Real Cure’s range includes salami, chorizo, nduja and air dried hams made using the very best free range British pork, wild British venison and Dorset Aberdeen Angus Beef from Jurassic Coast Farm.
Speaking about the latest wins, James Smart said: “We are absolutely thrilled to receive awards for these products in this year’s awards. Spicy, spreadable salami Nduja is a fantastic ingredient for cooking, using on pizza or simply enjoyed spread on toast. Our Fennel and White Pepper is a classic and aromatic salami that’s perfect for serving up as part of a cheese and charcuterie board and is how many of our customers at local delis, pubs and restaurants serve it.”
As well as their recent win, The Real Cure’s products will be appearing on Ainsley Harriott’s new ITV series Good Mood Food on the 30th October. Since the filming took place, the team at the Real Cure has completed an expansion project, part funded by the RPA rural grant scheme, at the premises in Hartgrove, doubling their production capacity and staff to allow them to keep up with the increasing demand for award winning charcuterie.
Don’t forget to pick up the Real Cure products, online or at one of their many suppliers including Fortnum and Mason, Farmdrop and locally at Compton McRae, Provenance, Pamphill Dairy, Shaftesbury Deli and East Street Deli in Wimborne.
