We received over 3,000 entries from over 30 countries including Australia, Japan, the Bahamas, Bhutan and the Czech Republic, and have now raised well over £200,000 for Hospice care in the UK and around the world. We are delighted to announce that the 2017 Best in Show was Shona Leckie, with her ‘Marmalade with a Twist’ – Seville Orange marmalade with Tate & Lyle Treacle.
