There will be seven categories, kicking off with preserves, pickles and spreads, with four producers selling their wares for two days in Tom’s shop in Malhamdale in the Yorkshire Dales. As well as winning over the locals, they must impress judges Nisha Katona and Alison Swan Parente in order to get a place in the final. Continues tomorrow. Rating: ****
