Discover where your food comes from and win a hamper from some of Europe’s finest food and drink regions

It’s the little luxuries in life that make us happy, and if you’re a bit of a foodie you'll be more concerned than ever about where your food comes from. The Quality, the origin, and of course the taste is all important when you pick your produce, and you can get no better than straight from the source where it was first made, which is guaranteed by a PDO, or Protected Designation of Origin, stamp.

Discover the Origin is a campaign led by the European Union, Italy, France and Portugal, focussing on five key European products: Burgundy wines, Port and Douro Valley wines, Parma Ham and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. All five of these products carry a guarantee of their provenance and quality. When you see PDO labels on these and other products, you can rest assured that you will be rewarded with excellent quality and complete authenticity.

To win an incredible hamper including top quality Port, a bottle of Burgundy, 250g of the best Parmigiano-Regianno cheese, a packet of mouth-watering Parma Ham, and some recipe ideas, just answer this simple question: :
