3 Stars for the Granville Hotel’s Raspberry Jam at the Great Taste Awards
Talented Chef Marion Mulrooney has been working at the Granville Hotel for 42 years
 Mon 28th August 2023

The team at Granville Hotel were delighted to win ‘3 Stars’ for their Homemade Raspberry Jam at this year’s Great Taste Awards, marking it as an ‘exquisite’ product. Great Taste is the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink accreditation scheme, run by the Guild of Fine Food in London. The judging process involves more than 500 judges consisting of chefs, cooks, buyers, retailers, restauranteurs, food critics and writers, who all take part in a blind tasting.

This year there were 14,195 entries from 109 countries with 5,556 receiving awards. Of these, only 241 products received the top prize of 3 Stars - just 1.7% of the field. From these products, only 17 products from Ireland received 3 Stars with the Granville Hotel being the only hotel in Ireland to receive the award this year.

Marion Mulrooney, Chef in the Granville Hotel for 42 years, takes the lead in making Homemade Jams for the hotel’s Breakfast Buffet and Coffee Mornings. She said that she was “thrilled with the award” and is “delighted to be able to be a part of something so successful for the hotel and the Cusack family”.
