“This year the awards had their big­gest ever re­sponse with some 7000 pub­lic votes be­ing placed for the best restau­rant and pub!”

EDP Norfolk - - Contents -

The year is rolling on. This week, I’ve gath­ered a bumper har­vest of pears and figs from our fruit trees; we’ve taken our son back to uni for an­other year; our daugh­ter’s started panto re­hearsals (“Oh yes she has!”) - I’ve even sneaked the heat­ing on a cou­ple of evenings. And, of course, we’ve cel­e­brated at the EDP Nor­folk Food and Drink Awards 2015 gala night. It’s al­ways a big part of the au­tumn cal­en­dar for the hun­dreds of peo­ple in­volved across the county, from fi­nal­ists to spon­sors and from us as hosts at the awards cer­e­mony to our bril­liant read­ers who kicked off the whole process back in the spring by nom­i­nat­ing their favourites. This year, in fact, the awards had their big­gest ever re­sponse with some 7000 pub­lic votes be­ing placed for the best restau­rant and pub! Take a look at our cov­er­age of the awards cer­e­mony, on pages 141 to 149, to see if your foodie faves are win­ners.

This month we’re telling you about an­other spe­cial way to en­joy great food with good friends - and at the same time help a very im­por­tant char­ity that does great work in Nor­folk. Marie Curie’s Din­ner Down Mem­ory Lane is a su­per idea to get us all shar­ing a meal and some happy mem­o­ries to raise money to help the char­ity con­tinue its sup­port for peo­ple liv­ing with ter­mi­nal ill­nesses and their fam­i­lies. In­deed, at the food awards Marie Curie was boosted by al­most £900 given in do­na­tions for a raf­fle to win the bril­liant Nor­folk’s Own Cook­book: Every­thing Stops for Tea, co-writ­ten by our very own food colum­nist Mary Kemp, which is sup­port­ing the char­ity too.

En­joy the very best of the au­tumn - es­pe­cially if you’re able to make the most of our har­vest of good food to help this great cause.
