17 FEBRUARY 2009 It's not quite a Golden Globe or a Bafta. Yet the Winslet family seemed delighted about the latest prize to come their way when Kate's mum was acknowledged as the culinary talent behind the tastiest pickled onions at her local pub.
Sally, champion for the third year running, looked proud as she accepted her award at The Retreat pub in East Reading.
Sharing her moment of glory were husband Roger, elder daughter Anna and Kate's younger sibling Beth, who clearly shares the family's pickling skills, coming third in the competition.
Asked to share her secret, the Reading grandmother revealed: "I just boil up the spices with sugar and when the balsamic vinegar is cold I pour it over the onions."
