Two Falkland Islands fishing companies were awarded in Brussels last week the Superior Taste Award which was extended to Marfrío a Spanish processing company that works with Patagonian squid caught in the Islands waters. Read full article
Save the squid!
(save some for me anyway)
Ha Ha Ha, one comment only.
What is fair aclarr is that it is: Ilex argentinus the real name of Argentine squid, thieves!.
What is fair aclarr is that it is: “Ilex argentinus” the real name of Argentine squid, thieves!.
Is that why CFK feels she can commit Eco-terrorism, licencing extra squid harvesting boats with the intention of wiping out the squid population to destroy the fishing industry of the Falklands?
Perhaps those squid stocks should be administered and regulated by the UN???
Tell me more about this Patagonian squid.
I've looked up Patagonia on my old map and it doesn't seem to be part of Argentina. How did it become part of Argentina Jose? When was that? Your not a filthy genocidal pirate usurper are you Jose?
Yes you are....
#2 Unfortunately for you mate, it isn't illex argentinus but loligo gahi - different species altogether. Try again.
@ 2 - clutching at straws?
Well done the Falkland Islanders, AGAIN!
The award one of the most prestigious in worldwide GASTRONOMY, ITQI, and with MICHELIN guide stars........
Article is telling porquies.....:
1) This PRESTIGIOUS AWARD has NOTHING to do with GASTRONOMY whatsoever.......
Is an award from the FOOD & BEVERAGE INDUSTRY to their INDUSTRIAL FOOD PRODUCTS... (As, for example, Deep-Frozen Battered Squid Rings)
2) MICHELIN guide stars???..... What MICHELIN guide stars???
The closest this kind of industrial product comes to the name MICHELIN are the tyres on the lorries that transport them to Tesco......
I bet you need ice on your battered squid ring after Dover has been round for the evening...not sure it would win any awards though
Here a complete list of the 2013 ITQI awarded ”GOURMET” companies and products….:
”GOURMET” companies like …..:
John Dewar & Son’s
Metro Cash & Carry
”GOURMET” food my left foot……………………
The Falkland Islands consitution means that all revenues, whether from fishing or oil, go to the self-governing Falkland Islanders.
The International Institute of Taste and Quality of Brussels (ITQI) makes its ratings in blind tasting with 60 restaurateurs of the most prestigious associations in Europe which evaluate criteria such as appearance, smell, texture and taste of the products, in this case the Patagonian squid.
See the above.
So, you are saying the award means nothing ?
It is an award for the quality of the product assessed by independent restaurateurs . What could be fairer than that ?
The following comes direct from the web site reference you gave. I cannot comment with any knowledge of the subject but it does mention Michelin.
The Superior Taste Award
The Michelin Guide of Food (Trends-Tendances, 21 August 2008)
Superior Taste Award
The following Awards can be granted to a tested product :
Exceptional products with 90% and more of total marks
Remarkable products with marks between 80% and 90%
Notable tasting products with marks between 70% and 80%
It does rather appear that you are aggrieved about the awarding of this title to a company associating with the Falklands. I notice the Argentinian awards were for Coca Cola !
So, you are saying the award means nothing ?
No, I'm saying that this Award is for Industrial Junk Food......
As Deep Fried, Deep FrozenBattered Squids rings is...
Laughed MAO at the thought of the Biggest Liar on MP trying to get up his own cuelo!
So what you are saying is that this processed squid is junk food
Is it only this item or do all the awards relate to junk food
From reading down the list of 100's, there seem to be lots of quality items which would appear in menus of reasonably good restaurants.
I keep hearing of choripanes on this site being the staple diet or food of choice in Argentina. Are these classed as junk food as well ?
So now among your self proclaimed talents, you are an expert in food and drink. Bully for you !
@Think, again I have to say it, you are so jealous of us Falkland Islanders! go and crawl back under that Argie rock you crept out of.
Have you ever tasted Kirin beer, Think?
